Clash in Jodhpur, Rajasthan before Eid, internet disruption

Police said a clash occurred between two communities in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, prior to Eid on Monday night after a dispute over raising a flag in the Jaloli Gate area.

In Jodhpur, internet services were shut down to prevent people from spreading rumors, and Eid catfish were offered under police protection.

The three-day Parshuram Jayanti Festival is also underway in Jodhpur, and the religious flags erected by both communities led to the main debate involved in the clash.

Police officers fired tear gas bullets, used sticks to disperse the crowd, and attacked local police stations.

News agency PTI reported that at least four policemen were injured in a stone throw early Tuesday.
