Muzaffarpur (Bihar): At least four persons were injured in a clash between ABVP and CPI(ML) workers when they hurled stones at each other in front of municipal corporation's auditorium in Muzaffarpur on Sunday, police said.

As ABVP workers protested against the sloganeering, both sides started pelting stones, he said, adding the incident left four persons injured.

While two of them sustained injuries on their head, two others received leg injuries.

The police chased away the protesters from the scene, the officer said, adding top officials led by District Magistrate Dharmendra Singh were camping at the site and the situation was under control.

MMC Commissioner, Ramesh Prasad Ranjan said that earlier CPI(ML) had asked for permission to hold a programme for intellectuals in support of Jawaharlal Nehru University(JNU)at the auditorium but ABVP workers objected to the proposal.

The Commissioner cancelled the venue of the programme after he did not get any update from the CPI(ML) workers.

However, CPI(ML) workers decided to hold the programme in front of MMC's auditorium which falls under Mithanpura police station area of the town.

In Achal Mishra's Gamak Ghar, the gradual erasure of a village home that will live forever in cinema

Mishra’s film pulled me into the lives that transpired within the four walls of the home – matter of fact, routine, mundane, lacking action in every way imaginable. Showing life in its ordinariness. Almost an anti-thesis to village life represented in Hindi cinema.
