So far, 18 persons stand arrested relating to incidents. The arrested people belong to both the communities that are at loggerheads.

Family members of certain Muslim and Hindu families visited the police station here on Wednesday June 14 evening, urging the police personnel to release people arrested by the police, whom they claimed to be innocent.
