Bantwal, May 10, 2018: One person was injured and had to be hospitalised following a clash between workers of two political parties over a trivial issue near the Nandavar Temple on May 9, Wednesday night.
The incident occurred when BJP workers who had attended a meeting held at a party member’s residence at Nandavar were returning. Sources said workers of another party had then shouted slogans denouncing them resulting in the clash.
Bantwal police had to resort to a mild lathi charge to disperse the crowd.
Security has been stepped up in the area following the incident.
