Jaipur, May 3: Curfew has been imposed in parts of Rajasthan’s Jodhpur on Tuesday as communal tension broke out in Jodhpur leading to stone-pelting hours before Eid.

Clashes broke out between two communities on Eid and the previous night over a dispute involving flags in the Jalori Gate area, the police said.

Five policemen were injured and few vehicles were damaged in the incident that took place past midnight, officials said.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who belongs to Jodhpur, appealed to the people to maintain peace and harmony.

The situation was brought under control with heavy deployment of police and internet services were suspended in Jodhpur to stop people from spreading rumours, and the namaz for Eid was offered under police protection.
