This comes days after Kasganj violence.

Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath broke his silence on Kasganj communal clashes promising stringent action against culprits while the Centre sought a report from his government on the violence that left one dead and atleast two others grievously injured. “Our government is committed to providing security to each and every citizen. Anarchy has no place in the state,” Adityanath told mediapersons here. He said strict action would be taken against the perpetrators of violence and asserted that none of the guilty would be allowed to go scot free.

The strife hit western UP town appeared limping back to normal with the administration claiming to have foiled an attempt by miscreants to foment fresh trouble by damaging a dome-like structure on the wall of an Eidgah.
