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.
