UP: 6 injured in clashes during Muharram procession”

In Kanpur, at least 12 people were injured, and six vehicles - four motorcycles and two cars - were set on fire after several Hindus and Muslims clashed in Parampurwa area, The Times of India reported. After that, the security of the area has been increased and heavy police force has been deployed. The situation is expected to be brought under control soon.

Trouble began when a Tazia procession - commemorating the death of Imam Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of prophet Muhammad - took a different route instead of the permitted one.

Police fired three rounds and 4 teargas shells in an attempt to restore law and order.

Tension gripped the Parampurva area after six persons were injured in a clash during a procession that saw members of two sides clashed, throwing bricks at each other and setting vehicles on fire, police said.

A similar incident happened in Rawatpur village in the district, but later controlled. Two RAF and three PAC teams are now in the district and the situation is under control, the police said.

Senior officials in Lucknow said the situations are being closely monitored. After the boy was injured, members of the Hindu community retaliated with an attack on a Muharram procession on Sunday.

The incident took place at a Durga Puja fair on Sunday evening, District Magistrate Surendra Vikram said when a quarrel between two children degenerated into a clash between two communities after their parents got involved.

As the rumour of stone pelting on the procession spread, two communities confronted each other and hurled brickbats.

"Police and provincial armed constabulary (PAC) personnel have been deployed at the spot".

The situation in Param Purwa area of the city was partially under control whereas in Rawatpur, people of the two communities were reportedly firing at each other besides fighting a pitched battle with the cops.
