Sangli: Curfew was clamped in Sangli on Sunday following a clash between two communities, police said.

The city had been tense since Thursday when some members of minority community allegedly damaged a Ganesh pandal depicting the historical scene of Shivaji killing Afzal Khan, they said.

The Ganesh mandals here have not immersed the idols as a protest against the incident.

The curfew was imposed in troubled Miraj in the district on Saturday, they said.

Maharashtra Home Minister Jayant Patil, who visited the city on Sunday, urged members of both the communities to maintain peace and harmony. — PTI
