Trouble broke out near Sikh Chawni near Bahadurpura, adjacent to the Old City, after miscreants burnt a religious flag

Indefinite curfew was imposed in Rajendranagar police station area under Cyberabad Commissionerate in Hyderabad on Wednesday, following communal clashes and death of three persons in police firing.

Trouble broke out near Sikh Chawni near Bahadurpura, adjacent to the Old City, after miscreants burnt a religious flag in the early hours of Wednesday. Tension gripped the area as members of a community attacked two youths blaming them for the flag burning incident.

Attacks on houses followed while arson was reported in some parts of the area. Cyberabad Police Commissioner C.V. Anand and top officials of Hyderabad Police arrived at the spot and reviewed the situation. Contingents of armed police and paramilitary forces, which were brought to the city for election security, were rushed to the area.

The situation was tense but under control, police officials told The Hindu. Patrolling has been stepped up in other sensitive areas of the Old City as rumours about violence and group clashes spread.

Hyderabad police too deployed armed pickets at strategic points in the Old City to ensure clashes didn’t spread to other areas.

Three killed in police firing

Earlier, three people were killed when police opened fire to control mobs going on a rampage near Kishanbagh in the outskirts of the Old City.

At least 10 private vehicles were burnt in the violence while a video camera mounted vehicle of the Cyberabad Police was attacked even as police struggled to contain the clash which broke out around 5 a.m. Cyberabad Police Joint Commissioner Gangadhar was pelted with stones as he headed police teams moving in the area.

Tension escalated in other parts of Old City as unconfirmed reports said that a youngster was attacked. Even as he was shifted to hospital, heavy stone pelting from both communities continued in the area.

Despite presence of police forces, the two groups started attacking properties. After lobbing tear gas shells, police opened fire on a mob resulting in the death of three persons who are yet to be identified.

Start ringing up, sending mass emails, etc to the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib to go down there and resolve this issue. Do not stop calling until he get's off his seat and actually does something

Trouble broke out near Sikh Chawni near Bahadurpura, adjacent to the Old City, after miscreants burnt a religious flag Indefinite curfew was imposed in Rajendranagar police station area under Cyberab

This most likely could have been something that ticked them off but I doubt it


Three people were killed while 17 others were injured as communal violence broke out in Kishanbagh area of Hyderabad on Wednesday. According to reports, the violence sparked over burning of a religious flag of Sikh community by some Muslims leading police to open fire to quell the mob.

Police clamped indefinite curfew under Rajendranagar police station limits after the clashes, which left 17 people, including ten police personnel, injured in heavy stone pelting.

Trouble broke out after members of the Sikh community noticed that a religious flag was burnt at a flag-post in an open ground near a hillock, police said.

As the news spread, people assembled in large numbers and some youths entered the nearby locality of another community and allegedly started attacking their houses and vehicles. Some parts of the area also reported arson even as police intervened and dispersed them, they said.

After some time, hundreds of members belonging to both communities gathered and pelted one another with stones and some police personnel, who tried to stop them, sustained injuries, a senior police official said.

Police opened fire to bring the situation under control and in the process, at least three persons suffered bullet wounds and succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment at a hospital.

“Around 1,000 members from both sides indulged in clashes. As lathi-charge proved ineffective, police warned the clashing groups and opened fire. Curfew has been imposed indefinitely and section 144 CrPC clamped in Rajendranagar police station area under Cyberabad Commissionerate in Hyderabad following the incident,” the official said.

“The situation is tense but under control. The injured have been admitted to different hospitals,” he said.

Sounds fishy probably an election time political ploy by the modi or congress clowns to stir up perceived tension between Sikhs and Muslims.

Yeah, it is suspicious that this happened during the end of the elections

**Please help spread this message**

Situation in Hyderababd is still Tense. Muslims are organized under their local leadership and they are in Lakhs in Hyderabad. They can start trouble again. Local Sikhs say they do not want any more clashes or trouble. However, they need Sikh Leadership to come in forefront and talk on their behalf. It is duty of Akaal Takhat Jathedar, Jathedars of other Takhats, SGPC and other Sikh Institutions to come forward and support Sikhs of Hyderabad and help them in negotiations with Local Muslim leadership. Police have arrested around 100 Sikh Youth from yesterday till today. Jathebandis need to come forward to support these Singhs. As told to us by Bhai Gurjeet Singh from Hyderabad. ( Worldwide Sikhs need to stop just looking into conspiracy theories and now come forward to help and support Sikhs of Hyderbad, and also get the Youth freed from Jails. We can talk about RSS conspiracy later on, as of now our brothers need us). There will be detailed report also on Sikh Channel UK.
