Som, accused of having uploaded a video which reportedly sparked communal tension in the area, had been arrested in Meerut on September 21. He is also facing allegations of having made inflammatory speeches.

Rana was arrested from Lucknow on Sept. 20 for his alleged role in stoking the violence which left 62 people dead and rendered 40,000 homeless.

The duo, however, remain in custody in connection with other charges related to the violence.

Three people were killed earlier this week when fresh clashes erupted in the Budhana area of the district.
