Tension prevailed in Kalyan following the alleged desecration of a portrait of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar on Thursday, police said.

Two suspects have been arrested in this connection, they said.

Two groups clashed with each other and indulged in rioting following the incident in which a portrait of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and a bust of Gautam Buddha in Waldhuni was allegedly desecrated, they said.

Police said late in the night that they have registered cross complaints against the rioting mob and further investigations were on.

Additional police force has been deployed in communally sensitive areas, they said.
