At least 14 people have been arrested in connection with the arson in which nearly half-a-dozen shanties of Muslims were gutted in Gabi Mahuaban village under Lalganj police station area of Pratapgarh district on Sunday.
The arson had occurred in the wake of a firing incident in the village Saturday evening, following a fight between two Muslim families. The son of the pradhan of neighbouring Bahuchara village was also injured in Saturday’s incident.
However, the police maintained that, prima facie, the involvement of the pradhan, Sanjay Singh, or his supporters was yet to be established.
