Curfew continues for third day in MP town

Curfew, imposed in a town in Madhya Pradesh’s Neemuch district following communal violence, continued for the third day on Sunday.

Some miscreants on Friday threw stones at a procession taken out on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti in Jawad town and at least 20 people were injured in the resulting melee.

Violence then flared up with a mob setting fire to residential buildings, vehicles and shops which left a number of people, including police personnel, injured.

“Women and children were exempted from the curfew between 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Sunday to let them buy things for their basic needs,” Indrajit Singh, sub-divisional police officer of Jawad town, said. – IANS
