Rioting in Kutch as rally to raise funds for Ayodhya Ram temple turns violent | India News

RAJKOT: Rioting broke out between mobs of two communities in villages close to Gandhidham in Kutch, as a rally brought out to collect funds for building the grand Ram temple at Ayodhya turned violent on Sunday.
While the situation first turned tense in Sadau village, the ripples swept to Kidana village adjoining Gandhidham where mobs turned violent and resorted to arson. Official sources said the rally was organised by VHP and that altercation over fund collection suddenly snowballed into rioting.
A curfew-like situation prevailed in Kidana village where prohibitory orders were clamped under Section 144 of the IPC due to heavy rioting. Sources said some miscreants attacked people in the rally, which led to escalation of violation.
“A huge mob had gathered during the rath yatra and there was stone pelting. We also lobbed tear gas shells and the situation is under control now,” JR Mothaliya, range IGP, Kutch, said. “Some people have been detained also,” he added.
There was heavy stone pelting on police personnel in which some cops got injured, said sources. Local community members were roped in to ensure peace in the village. “We request people from both faiths not to heed to any rumours that may escalate the tension,” Juma Raima, a local community leader, said.
