The erosion of law and order in Jharkhand’s capital city, ahead of assembly elections in Bihar and festival season across the country, continued with meat being found outside two more places of worship in Ranchi on Monday.
The situation worsened overnight, with firing between Muslims and Hindus taking place in the Doranda locality. Hindi daily Prabhat Khabar reported on Tuesday morning that Ghaus Nagar, Manitola, Pokhartoli – all of which are near the Lower Hinoo locality where trouble first flared on Friday night – saw violence since midnight. No casualties have been reported; senior police officers are camping in the area amid tensions.
Meat was found outside two places of worship in Ranchi on Monday: outside the Kali Mandir off Mandir Road and outside a masjid in Ormajhi, on the outskirts of Ranchi.
