Ahmedabad: A clash broke out between members of two communities in Patdi village of Surendranagar district following an attack on a boy during a circus show, police said Saturday.

"Hemant Thakor was attacked after an altercation at a circus show last night. He was rushed to the local hospital and later shifted to Ahmedabad for further treatment," a senior police official of Surendranagar said.

The attack triggered a clash between two communities living in the village. Police rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control, he said.

Police have registered a case of attempt to murder and launched an investigation, he said, adding no arrest has been made so far.

"We have asked the local police to expedite the investigation and maintain law and order," the official added.

A clash had taken place between the two parties demanding jobs in the factory on March 1 in which 20 people, including 15 from TC were injured.

The TC East Midnapore district general secretary Pratap Maity and leader Tanmoy Metia were hospitalised on March 2 and arrested by the police from there today, party sources said.
