Hisar: Less than two months after
the torching of Dalit houses which claimed two lives, fresh
clashes have broken out between two groups leaving four
persons injured in firing and stone-pelting at Surya Nagar
area here.

The trouble started Monday night when a motorcyclist hit a
buffalo in a by-lane following which members of a particular
community sealed two by-lanes, triggering clashes between the
two armed rival groups, police said.

Superintendent of Police Subhah Yadav visited the area
and held a meeting between the rival groups in a bid to defuse
tension, but it failed to arrive at a solution, they said.

Heavy police deployment was made in the area to prevent
any untoward incident.

The injured were hospitalised and a case was taken
against unknown persons, they said, adding no arrests have been made.

On April 21, a 70-year-old Dalit and his teenaged
physically-challenged daughter were burnt alive when members
of another community set afire several Dalit houses in
Mirchpur village here.
