Bareilly sees fresh violence, one killed

A youth was killed in fresh violence in the strife-torn town after a lull of two days when members of two communities clashed at a place under Baradari police station, hurling stones and opening fire.

The police said that the incident took place in Jogi Newada locality in which Imran, 20, was hit by a bullet and later died at a private hospital. The district magistrate Manish Chauhan, however, said that Imran was killed in a clash related to election rivalry. The senior superintendent of police Sanjiv Gupta said that one person was arrested from the spot after the firing incident.

With this, the toll rose to three in the clashes that began on Sunday in Bareilly and neighbouring Aonla town.

On Tuesday a teenager Farhan died during treatment at the hospital, though IG [Law and Order] B P Singh said in Lucknow that it was not clear where he was injured.
