A petty dispute between two teenage students turned into a confrontation between two communities in Bahadurgarh village of Hapur district on Thursday. No one was injured in the clash but unconfirmed sources claimed that firing took place from both sides and a few shops were also set on fire.

Senior officials denied the firing, admitting that the people involved in the clash set a kiosk on fire. “A quarrel between teenaged students led to a mild confrontation between two groups of different communities,” said commissioner of Meerut division Bhupendra Singh. “A kiosk was set on fire but fire tenders controlled the blaze in time,” said the commissioner, insisting, “There was no clash between the two communities and we will not allow anyone to stoke communal tension”.

However, unconfirmed sources claimed that the clash took place between the members of two communities when the quarrelling teenage students reported the matter to their community members. Within no time they came face to face and clashed with each other. “Firing took place from both sides and the people also engaged in brick batting,” said the sources, adding that a few shops were also set on fire.
