The cops on Thursday, Oct 25 clamped prohibitory order in the city in order to restrain the two groups who began attacking each other after pelting stones. However, police sources informed that the situation in the city came under control within one hour after issuing the order.
Police officials were quoted as saying, "Prohibitory orders under section 144 Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) have been imposed in Musheerabad police limits from 6 am onwards today for 24 hours to avoid any further incident. The situation is now peaceful and under control."
Two groups of different communities were engaged in the clash when members of one community raised objections and argued with members of other community while they were trying catch a bull which had escaped from their locality on Wednesday.
During the clash and heated argument, one youth died after being attacked by a sharp weapon. His death "provoked" the other group which indulged in stone pelting, said police.
Hyderabad had witnessed violence on Sept 30 when clashes broke out between pro-Telangana supporters and police in several parts of the city when the activists defied prohibitory orders and joined the 'Telangana march' in a massive show of solidarity for a separate state.
