Muslims allowed to offer prayers at Bhojshala on Basant Panchami
Meanwhile, the saffron workers continued with protest. Trouble began at around noon when police asked the majority community members to vacate the premises, but they refused. Unidentified persons indulged in stone-pelting causing injuries to policemen and damaging a few media vehicles.
Police cane-charged the protesters and lobbed teargas shells to disperse them and to defuse the situation.
Inspector General Anuradha Shankar told reporters that a total of 16 people offered namaz in the complex at the designated time. She described the incident at the site as "minor" and said situation was quickly brought under control.
