A day after the clash in Mirzapur , a religious procession by the minority community was disrupted in Kanpur, leading to communal tension in the area on Wednesday.

According to The Hindu, about four people reportedly received minor injuries after two communities clashed with each other during a procession on the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad.

The situation was brought under control on police intervention. Several companies of PAC and a company of the RAF have been deployed in the area to maintain peace.
