BIDAR: Following a communal clash on Sunday, police clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC at Labour Colony near Shah Gunj here.

According to the police, the clash occurred when people of a particular community gathered for prayer and members of another community were conducting a funeral nearby. The funeral party was beating drums and this apparently disturbed the others who were praying. All efforts to get them to stop playing the drums went in vain. A verbal war started between the two groups, which got violent soon.
