An uneasy calm had been prevailing in the district since killing of an RSS volunteer, Ravi, here on January 20. Same night, another RSS man had received injuries in an attack allegedly carried out by a six-member gang, suspected to be workers of Muslim outfit, National Development Front.
Following the incidents, the RSS had called for a hartal in the district on Sunday and some of its activists allegedly waylaid a passer-by belonging to the minority community and attacked him.
