Lucknow, Oct 26 (UNI) Tension prevailed in Badaut area of the Muzaffarnagar district in Uttar Pradesh after two groups clashed over possession of a piece of land, which is part of a graveyard.

The Home department said three people were injured in firing and stone pelting. ''The situation now is peaceful and under control,'' an official claimed.
