{image-Communities clash_07102008.jpg}Dior (West Bengal), Oct 7: At least twelve people were injured in a communal clash in Dior village of South Dinajpur District in West Bengal. But the situation worsened when members of the Hindu community found a piece of flesh hanging outside a community prayer hall made for 'Durga Puja'.

A large number of people from neighbouring villages rushed to the spot, turning the situation volatile. The police had to fire in the air and resort to tear gassing to disperse the violent mob. "We have fired seven rounds of tear gas to disperse the mob. We have imposed Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code indefinitely to control the situation," said Swapan Banerjee Purnapatra, Superintendent of Police of South Dinajpur district.
