Two people were killed and 47 others injured, including six policemen, after clashes between Bharvad and Koli Patel communities in Dhedal, police said.

Over 15 rounds were fired in air by police to control mobs of both the communities, District Suprintendent of Police SS Trivedi told PTI.

"Two people were killed and 47 were injured, including six policemen, during the clash. All those injured have been referred to nearby hospitals and VS Hospital in the city," Trivedi said.

People from both Bharvad and Koli Patel communities entered into an argument over a petty issue, which led to an altercation which ultimately resulted in the brawl, Trivedi added.

"The two persons have been killed using a sharp object or weapon," Trivedi added.

The situation was brought under control and investigation into the events that led to the clashes has been initiated, he added.

District Collector Harit Shukla also rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation.
