A clash took place between two communities following which authorities imposed curfew in two areas of the city even as nearly 50 people were arrested in connection with the incident, police said on Sunday.
Trouble began in Kotwali area when a man was allegedly attacked with weapons by three persons of another community in a market on Friday night, they said.
