New Delhi: At least six people were injured after miscreants pelted stones at a garba function during Navratri celebration in Undhela village of Gujarat’s Kheda district on Monday night.

“During Navratri celebrations in Undhela village last night, a group led by two people named Arif and Zahir started creating a disturbance. Later they pelted stones in which six people got injured,” said Rajesh Gadhiya, DSP Kheda

VR Bajpai, DSP Nadiad, said that the Muslim mob also damaged the sarpanch’s car and hurled stones where the Navratri celebrations were on.

“There were 150-200 people including women in the mob. Sarpanch has identified 43 people and filed a complaint against them. Around 10-11 accused have been detained for interrogation,” said Bajpai.

The sarpanch of the village had organised a garba event in the village, the venue of which was close to a mosque. As the people were celebrating, a group belonging to the other community reached the spot and asked them to stop, an India Today report quoted the police officials as saying.

The group then resorted to stone pelting in which six people got injured, the report added.
