Ludhiana, Mar 16 (UNI) Nine people, including three police personnel, were injured during a clash between workers and police outside the Oswal Wollen Mill on the G T Road here this morning, police said.

The movement of traffic on the GT road was disrupted for more than an hour.

Extra police force has been called to maintain law and order as tension prevailed in the area.

The injured have been admitted to hospital.
