Barring an incident of firing in which two persons suffered pellet injuries, the situation today remained by and large peaceful in riot-hit Muzaffarnagar, where Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is slated to visit tomorrow.

Two persons sustained pellet injuries when they were shot at in Phughna area of the district today.

"Two persons, who were working in a field, were shot at between Fugana and Loi villages. They sustained pellet injuries," Additional Director General (Law and Order) Arun Kumar told reporters in Lucknow.

"Some cartridges were recovered from the spot. Police are looking into the matter. The incident created some flutter in the area, but situation is normal in the district," he said.

Two youths were also arrested today for allegedly sending inflammatory text messages in Sikhera village in the district.

Four others, including son of a khap council head, were arrested in Bahawdi village on complaints by some riot victims for their alleged involvement in violence.

Kumar said Chief Minister Minister Akhilesh Yadav is scheduled to visit Muzaffarnagar tomorrow and all arrangements are in place.
