Balrampur Puja Procession Violence Pre-Planned? Cops Deny Claims
As the 10-day Durga Puja festival came to an end with devotees across the country bidding farewell to Goddess Durga, an incident has come light from Uttar Pradesh's Balrampur district where clashes broke out between two groups during a Durga Puja procession.
Various media outlets including right wing website, OpIndia and news daily Punjab Kesari reported the incident.
The two publications attributed the following information to the Balrampur Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) -"The attack on the Visarjan procession might not have been spontaneous and the Muslim community may have been prepared with stones from before, in wait of the procession."
Since then the video of the incident has gone viral on various social media platforms and is being massively shared.
Swati Goel Sharma, a journalist with Swarajya magazine, also quoted from the OpIndia report and shared the video.
