According to the police, no untoward incident was reported anywhere. At least 37 persons, including a few security force personnel, were injured in the clash that broke out at the Baltal base camp on July 18 after a dispute between pony owners and community kitchen owners, which was followed by the alleged high-handedness of the CRPF personnel.
