One person was injured in a clash between Dera Sacha Saudha supporters and Sikh community over morning prayers at Kaliya town in Rajasthan's Sriganganagar district on Friday, police said.

The clash took place when one Gokul Chand, a Dera devotee, organised "Nam-Charcha" at his residence which was strongly opposed by his Sikh neighbours, Superintendent of Police (Sriganganagar) Alok Vashishta told PTI on telephone.

Following heated argument over the issue, both sides indulged in stone pelting at each other in which one person was injured, he said, adding the victim was administered first-aid immediately.

Two person of both sides, including Gokul Chand, were arrested, Vashishta said.

Dera devotees usually hold "Nam Charcha" on Sundays but Gokul Chand did not seek any permission, he said, adding the situation was under control.
