A procession led by Maulana Tauqeer Raza, a prominent Muslim cleric and politician, turned violent on Friday afternoon when some youths from the same community hurled stones at the participants. The incident took place after the Friday prayers, when Maulana Raza and his supporters were returning to their homes from the mosque. Three to four people were injured in the stone pelting, and some shops and vehicles were also damaged. According to the police, the trouble started when some people objected to the slogans raised by the procession, which they considered provocative and inflammatory. A heated argument ensued, which soon escalated into a clash. The stone pelters also targeted the police personnel who tried to intervene and restore order. The police had to resort to mild force and tear gas to disperse the mob. Uttar Pradesh: Five Injured in Firing Between Rival Groups in Bareilly, Probe Underway.
