Four people have died in violence in a Northern Indian State after authorities demolished a mosque, alleging it was constructed illegally.
Violence broke out in Uttarakhand’s Haldwani town during what police say was an “anti-encroachment drive”.
Authorities said the drive was launched to clear illegal constructions, including the mosque and an adjoining madrassa which is a religious school but Muslims who prayed at the mosque said they have been unfairly targeted.
Hundreds of protesters and police personnel were injured in the clashes which broke out on Thursday evening as trending videos showed protesters setting fire to vehicles and pelting stones and the police firing tear gas at them.
A curfew has been imposed and the state has issued shoot at sight orders to bring the situation under control.
