Chhapra town in Bihar is the grip of communal tension for the past 24 hours after Hindu groups enforced a bandh in the area Friday to protest against spread of alleged defamatory videos and messages on Hindu deities on WhatsApp. The content was allegedly circulated by a man from Maker near Chhapra town, but now lives in Bengaluru.

A Special Auxiliary Police official was injured and over two dozen shops were either gutted or vandalised as right-wing groups tried to enforce the bandh. Police have deployed additional forces in the area.
