At least eight houses were torched and some people injured in a clash between two groups at Chalkkasi village in Howrah district of West Bengal on Thursday, police said.

There was simmering tension in the area ever since a scuffle broke out between members of a religious procession and another group one and half months back, local people said.

As an altercation broke out between two persons this morning, it soon snowballed into an clash between two sides. At least eight houses were torched by the rampaging mob and some people injured, police said.
