Muzaffarnagar: Atleast two policemen were
injured when an irate mob of pilgrims set a police outpost on
fire, after they were barred from taking a particular route at
Kairana in the district, officials said on Saturday.

Deputy Superintendent of Police S K Shukla on Saturday said
that a case has been registered in this connection. The two
injured policemen were taken to the hospital and the condition
of one of them, Omprakash is said to be serious.

Trouble arose when a group of `kanwarias`, devotees of
Lord Shiva were barred by the police from taking a particular
road when they were returning from Haridwar. The pilgrims then
attacked policemen and set the outpost on fire. They also
damaged police property.

However the situation has been brought under control,
Shukla said.
