Nuh: On Monday in Nuh, Haryana, a religious procession was marred by severe violence. Around 2,500 men, women and children have taken shelter in a temple.

When the two groups clashed, cars were set on fire and stones were thrown. Police arrived at the scene quickly after learning of the incident and launched tear gas shells in the air to disperse the crowd.

Internet access has been turned down in the region as a precaution.

The Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra, being held by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, was stopped by a group of young men on the Gurugram-Alwar National Highway and stones were thrown at the procession.

Government and private vehicles were attacked by the mob as the violence increased.

The Nulhar Mahadev temple is currently providing refuge to the 2,500 participants in the procession. They have parked their cars outside. As of yet, the cops have been unable to remove them.

According to reports, a Bajrang Dal activist’s inappropriate video shared on social media sparked the altercation.

Monu Manesar, a member of the Bajrang Dal, and his friends, who are suspected in a number of criminal cases, disseminated the video a few days ago and openly disputed that he would remain in Mewat during the yatra, NDTV reported quoting sources.

Numerous people claim to have spotted them during the yatra, and the villagers are said to have retaliated in response
