india Updated: Oct 05, 2007 22:36 IST

Tension gripped Chikali town of Navsari district in South Gujarat after members of two communities clashed over the issue of cow slaughter in Ahmedabad, police said.

Additional police forces have been rushed to the town after members of both the communities pelted stones at each other, police officials.

No casualties have been reported, officials added.

This is the second such incident in the South Gujarat region in the last few weeks.

On September 18, similar communal rioting happened in Mangrol taluka of neighbouring Surat district, after a local leader of Gau Raksha Samiti (cow-protection unit) was killed in Kosadi village.
