No relaxation in curfew in Bareilly



Bareilly: In the wake of fresh incidents of violence, curfew remained across the city without any relaxation.

Divisional Commissioner K Rammohan Roy said so far 290 people have been arrested in the city in connection with clashes that began on Sunday.

He said ration was distributed in the curfew-bound areas.

The local administration has written a letter to the government requesting cancellation of SSC examination scheduled on Sunday.

A youth was killed last night in fresh violence in the strife-torn town after a lull of two days when members of two communities clashed at a place under Baradari police station, hurling brickbats and opening fire.

Police said the incident took place in Jogi Newada locality in which Imran (20) was hit by a bullet and later died at a private hospital.

District Magistrate Manish Chauhan, however, had said Imran was killed in a clash related to election rivalry. Earlier, two persons died in the clashes.
