Sources said the scuffle broke out in a playground of a government school located between the two blocks of Trilokpuri. While residents intervened and separated the two groups, one of the boys was allegedly beaten up by the other group later in the day. Following the incident, police said residents from both blocks gathered at the main chowk and began to hurl stones at each other.
The stone-pelting lasted 20 minutes till local police arrived at the spot and resorted to mild force to disperse the crowd. Sources said the area, however, remains tense with police patrolling the locality round-the-clock. On Monday, a member from the Aman committee held a meeting in the locality and urged residents to maintain peace and calm in the area. At least two companies of police force are still patrolling the locality.
Two years ago, Trilokpuri had witnessed a month-long curfew following a communal clash during Diwali. Over 50 persons were injured and five persons were arrested in connection with the incident.
