NEEMUCH: At least 10 people suffered injuries in Madhya Pradesh's Neemuch district when some miscreants pelted stones at a religious procession being taken out on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti.

Police said members of a specific group hurled stones at a religious procession. Soon both sides engaged in fighting, forcing police to lob tear gas shells and cane charge to disperse the clashing crowd.

Ujjain's Police Superintendent Madhu Kumar said the situation was now under control and some arrests had been effected while police were looking for yet more of the absconding miscreants. He also said extra police force had been requisitioned from neighbouring districts as a preventive measure.
