On Thursday (March 30) around 1:30 pm, stones were pelted on a procession in Panjrigar Mohalla in Fatepura area. Just 4 hours later, the stone pelting started again at 5:42 pm on another procession which left from Kumbharwara in Fatepura. The procession left from Kumbharwada at 5:38 hrs and within four minutes the procession started raining stones. There are fears that stone pelting on the second procession after the first procession was done with fool proof planning.
Today (March 31, Friday) 45 rioters have been arrested by the police. Apart from this, a complaint has been filed in the city police station against the mob of 500. All arrested accused will be produced in court and remand will be sought. Following the riots, the Friday market near Bhutdizampa was not allowed to open. Anjapabhari peace was observed in Fatepura Char Road area even today. However, tight police arrangements were made by the city police to prevent any untoward incident.
