One shot at, tension in Aligarh

Aligarh: Tension flared up in some areas of curfew-bound Aligarh after one person was critically injured in a firing incident on Saturday while the Uttar Pradesh Government suspended a magistrate, an RAF personnel and a policeman and deployed two additional companies of CRPF in the town.

A man was shot at in Delhi Gate area around noon triggering fresh tension in communally sensitive areas. He was admitted to AMU Medical College in critical condition, a Home Department official said.

The fresh violence erupted when members of the two communities started pelting each other with stones and firing from roof-tops.

The State Government suspended the Station House Officer of Delhi Gate police station and a sub-inspector of the Rapid Action Force besides removing the Sector Magistrate of Delhi Gate, the spokesman said in Lucknow. Two companies of the CRPF had reached Aligarh to be deployed in the affected areas. Nine companies of PAC and six companies of CPF were already patrolling the town, he said.

He said 155 people had so far been taken into custody for both "preventive and substantive offences." — PTI
