Stones were pelted on a procession taken out from a temple in Thasra town in Gujarat’s Kheda district on Friday afternoon, resulting in injuries to a few people, including three policemen, and tension between two communities.
The ‘shobha yatra’ is taken out every year from the Shiva temple on the last day of the month of ‘Shravan’ and this time there were 700-800 participants.
When it reached Teen-batti area, some anti-social elements threw stones and bricks at the procession. Police present there immediately brought the situation under control. Reinforcements from across the district have been called in and deployed in the town to stop any untoward incident.
