One burnt alive in Vadodara
Vadodara, May 2
Tension gripped the Nyaya Mandir area as a mob attacked a small place of worship just behind the district and sessions court here today when curfew was relaxed in Raopura and Panigate police station areas between 1230 hrs and 1430 hrs.
Nyaya Mandir, in the central business district, is where most of the government offices, including the collectorate and court, are located.
A violent mob armed with swords and other sharp-edged weapons, entered the court premises yesterday afternoon to give vent to their anger against the court refusing stay on the demolition of a 100-year-old dargah.
Another case of violence was also reported from Hathikhana in a non-curfew area. Meanwhile, another person injured in yesterday’s police firing succumbed to his injuries at the hospital early today, taking the death toll to five.
