Indore, Nov 12 (UNI) Curfew was clamped on this district's Sanver town today after communal tension and violence following a dispute that claimed a life, besides injuring three others.

''This afternoon, some youths used swords to attack a youth hailing from a certain community. Two others were injured. Police lobbed teargas canisters and lathicharged to disperse a mob. Curfew was subsequently clamped,'' said Indore Zone's Inspector-General Rajendra Kumar.

A total of three injured people were admitted to the nearby Shri Arvind Medical College Hospital, where one of the youth succumbed to the injuries. Another youth who sustained a gunshot wound to the head was stated to be critical.

At about 1000 hrs, a minor dispute at a tea stall assumed communal dimensions and members of two communities confronted one another. Officials succeeded in pacifying them and an additional police force was stationed in the area. Senior officials of the administration and police are camping at Sanver.

Sanver, about 35 km from here, is going for an assembly by-election on December 12.
