Around ten people, including a Gram Rakshak Dal/Home Guard, were injured when a Muslim group attacked a garba event in Undhela village of Kheda district in Gujarat.
Police have rounded up a few suspects.
According to Kheda District Superintendent of Police Rajesh Gadhia, “Garba was underway in Mandvi chowk of the Undhela village late on Monday night, when a group led by Arif and Zahir entered the venue and started causing trouble. They even pelted stones. On being informed, police force rushed in and brought the situation under control.”
After the villagers identified the people involved, the police rounded up a few suspects for rioting, unlawful assembly, possessing deadly weapons and hurting voluntarily and obstructing public servants from discharging one’s duty.

Village Sarpanch Indravadan Patel alleged that it was a pre-planned attack as the minority community members were not only armed with sticks and other weapons, but had stored stones on the terrace of houses.
