Jaipur, Sep 22 (UNI) Tension prevailed in the Bhatta Basti area here following violent clashes between two groups last night which forced the police to resort to lathicharge and use tear gas to control the situation.
A police spokesman said here the trouble started following a personal quarrel between a medical practitioner and his former employee in the afternoon yesterday and took an ugly turn later in the night when the medical practitioner and his accomplices beat up the latter.
In the ensuing clash, members of the groups belonging to different communities indulged in stone throwing and set afire a couple of two wheelers.
Several persons sustained injuries in the stone throwing.
The police used tear gas when the earlier measure of lathicharge remained ineffective in dispersing the mob.
The police is keeping a vigil on the situation which was now normal, the spokeaman said.
No case has so far been filed in this regard, he added.
