Jaipur: The CBI on Sunday arrested 13 people in
connection with communal riots in Bharatpur that left 10
people dead in September.

"Those arrested are civilians from both Mev and Gujjar
communities," according to a CBI spokesperson.

They will be produced in a CBI court tomorrow.

Ashok Gehlot government had received flak for the
violence which erupted in Gopalgarh town of Bharatpur district
in September following a land-related dispute between Gujjars
and Muslim Mevs, prompting it to recommend a CBI probe.
