Four Killed in Muzaffarnagar Violence
Violence returned to Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh with the death of four people yesterday. However, the incident was not attributed to communal tension.
The tragedy was a fallout between people from Hussainpur and Mohammedpur over a land dispute. A farmer was killed at the field when rival groups opened fire at him. People from his side sought to avenge the death and killed three people, including a woman from the rival group.
At least eight people from Mohammaedpur have been arrested. Around 600 paramilitary personnel have been sent to the area to prevent any flare-up in tension. Muzaffarnagar has been at the centre of communal hatred last month, when 45 people lost their lives and over 200 got injured in the communal riots that lasted for over a week.
