The police said that two cases have been registered in this regard and they have launched a search for a few more persons who were involved in the clash.

There was an exchange of blows resulting in injury to nine persons. The injured were admitted to two different hospitals.

Meanwhile, members of saffron outfits led by Hindu Jagarana Vedike leader Satyajit Surathkal picketed Surathkal police station on Tuesday late evening in protest of the clashes that erupted in Janata Colony. Satyajit had alleged that the police were favouring one community.
