Gwalior: Curfew has been imposed in Gwalior city on Saturday post the indulgence of a Muharram procession in violence. Police had to resort to baton charge and tear gas to restore order.

According to police, the passing of a Muharram procession in front of a Hindu religious site in Sevanagar area was opposed on Friday night, leading to a clash between members of both communities. Police intervened and brought the situation under control.

However, another spat took place on Saturday afternoon and led to heavy brick-batting between the two communities, leading to police using force to disperse the mobs.

Superintendent of Police Harinarayan Chari Mishra told IANS that curfew was imposed in the area as a precautionary measure but the situation is now under control.
