At around 1045 there was stone pelting by miscreants at Khadak galli and this went on for over 20 minutes and with only 3-4 police men at the booth they were awaiting more force.
The miscreants threw stones, tiles, even acid on houses, streets lights and whatever they could find.
Some of the miscreants even entered homes and destroyed home furniture and consumer durables.
The police who came in after 20 mins as per eye witnesses could not cope up with the miscreants and as there were no power there, the miscreants of a community burnt autos, bikes, cars parked on the road. Street lights were broken and within 20 minutes the street was full of stones.
The police which came in did not enter the main street but tried to enter from the sides which was very surprising and later 3 cops including ACP Shankar Marihal and Police Inspector Prashant were injured.
Stones were pelted in Khade Baazar area near sheetal hotel as well.
