Nawada: Five days after a communal clash erupted between two groups that claimed two lives, curfew was on Saturday lifted completely in Bihar`s Nawada district.

A peace committee meeting, comprising members of both communities, was held under the supervision of Nawada District Magistrate Adesh Titarmare and resolved to maintain peace in the town.

Warning the anti-socials against indulging in violence, Titarmare said the police have identified those who had flared up the violence in the district.

He said that they would be brought to justice very soon.
