Tension broke out in Bukhara village in Bareilly on Tuesday when thousands of ITBP aspirants went on a rampage, torched a number of vehicles and pelted stones after they failed to submit their forms due to alleged mismanagement by the authorities.
Thousand of youths, who had gathered at the ITBP Bukhara camp to submit their recruitment forms and obtain a token for physical test, failed to get their forms deposited, sources said in Bareilly.
Soon after that, they went on a rampage and torched seven buses including five of roadways, a petrol pump and a number of two-wheelers and indulged in brick batting, they said.
The agitating youths also pelted stones on AIR and Doordarshan offices there.
District Magistrate Anil Garg said the incident took place as there were a number of aspirants and the arrangement to deposit them was "improper".
"I have talked to ITBP officials to get the forms submitted through post to avoid such incidents", Garg, who reached the spot, said.
Senior officials of the administration and police have reached the spot and are trying to control the situation.
The aspirants had last night clashed with farmers over plucking of sugarcane from their fields.
After the farmers objected to their behaviour, the aspirants torched the cane fields following which the farmers opened fire at them.
