EC steps in but fresh violence erupts in Bihar's Munger

Oct 30, 2020 00:11 IST

Despite the Election Commission stepping in, fresh protests erupted in Bihar’s Munger Thursday against the district administration in the wake of the violence that broke out during Durga idol immersion late Monday night. The agitated crowd, comprising mostly youth, torched two police vehicles parked outside Puravsarai outpost. The protesters shouted slogans against now shifted-out SP Lipi Singh for her failure to control the violence, which left one person dead and over three dozen people injured. Prohibitory orders have been imposed under CrPC section of 144. The Munger Police said extra forces had been deployed after fresh protests. A policeman was injured while trying to control the mob. So far, the Munger Police have detained over 100 people.
