Tension prevailed in Punjab’s Phagwara after two groups clashed on Friday night over an attempt to install a flex-banner bearing a photo of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar at the town’s 'Goal Chowk' (square) and to rename it as ‘Samvidhan Chowk’.

Four people were injured in the clash.

Following the incident, the Punjab government on Saturday ordered suspension of mobile internet and SMS services in four districts - Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar.
