A day after residents of Buddha Vihar and Rahul Vihar area held a massive protest on NH-24 in Ghaziabad,an FIR against 49 people (who were named) and against 900 unnamed people was registered at the Vijay Nagar police station.

A clash between police and residents of a Ghaziabad colony had occurred on Saturday,when the Ghaziabad Development Authority officials arrived at the colony,which they claimed was unauthorised,to evict the residents.

Angry protesters blocked the NH-24,resulting in a traffic jam stretching as long as 15 km. The road from Lal Kuan to UP Gate was reportedly blocked.

Besides,the mob also set afire more than a dozen vehicles,including a bus and two trucks. With protesters getting out of control,police fired teargas shells to disperse the mob and resorted to canecharge.
