A temple was demolished during an anti-encroachment drive ahead of chief minister Mayawati's visit here, sparking tension in this town.

The razing of the temple located at the gate of Kasganj tehsil premises led to stone-pelting by locals at the bulldozer.

Immediately after the incident, all markets were closed by BJP and VHP activists who also staged a dharna against the district administration.

Policemen were deployed in strength in the city.
