Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Saturday, asserted communal tensions during Ram Navami festivities at Sasaram and Bihar Sharif towns were triggered by some people indulging in “gadbad” (mischief) and rejected the BJP’s charge that it indicated poor law and order situation in the state. He said police officials have been instructed to “take strict action against them”. The state police have so far arrested 45 people in connection with communal riots.

Meanwhile, the Hyderabad police said they have taken suo-moto cognisance of a clash that took place between two groups following sloganeering on Ram Navami on March 30 during evening Ramzan prayers. No complaint has been receivedso far and accused are still to be identified.

“A clash occurred between two groups in the Charminar area. A few people from the Muslim community attacked a few people from the Hindu community who came on a bike and started sloganeering on Ram Navami day during Ramzan evening prayers,” Charminar Station House Officer (SHO) said. Further probe into the incident is underway. Clashes were reported in various other parts of the country.
