An aroused Muslim crowd attacked a Christian locality, Francis Colony today- annihilating shops, houses and vehicles belonging to the local Christians. According to the details, this fresh attack is an aftermath of a clash between the youths of the two communities last night. The witnesses reveal that at 2:00 pm today a mob from a nearby Naroki Village attacked and ransacked shops, houses and vehicles of local Christians. However the mob disbanded when the Christians retaliated.

According to the preliminary reports, a group of Christian boys were shunned by a Muslim cleric while playing music on their cell phones as they passed by a mosque on Tuesday evening.

 

After an undue delay, the police resolved to aerial firing and pelting stones at the mob to disperse the people. The mob also pelted stones at the police in retaliation.
