Patna: It was chaos in Vaishali district of Bihar after clashes erupted between the police and the locals when the former was in the middle of demolishing a temple yesterday in which several cops were injured.

Sub-Inspector of Police Sanjay Kumar’s rifle was snatched and he was severely beaten. The injured are being treated in a hospital here. The police had gone to demolish a temple following the court’s order.

There were attempts made by the police earlier as well when they took the district magistrate with them and tried to demolish the temple, but failed to do so due to the locals’ anger against the administration.

The locals included both Hindus and Muslims who unitedly objected to demolition of the temple.

The High Court had ordered to demolish the Vasudev temple. The locals raised slogans against the administration and claimed that the real situation was not being revealed to the court.

According to them, it is a private land but the administration is claiming it to be government’s property.
