Police on Saturday used tear gas and batons to break a clash between saffron activists and members of a minority community in Mukeripura area of this town.

The trouble erupted when a group belonging to the minority community brandished swords in front of an office bearer of a saffron outfit, Superintendent of Police Anshuman Singh Yadav said.

He said this led to a clash between the two groups which pelted each other with stones and a police force had to be rushed to the area.

They fired tear gas shells and used batons to get the situation under control, he said.

"Mukeripura area is tense, but under control" and police forces were deployed in the area to monitor the situation, Yadav said.
