Mangaluru: A clash-like situation that had arisen over the buntings put up to mark the 3-day Dharma Samsad here at Katipalla late Monday night was averted due to timely police action.

The situation arose when a section of the buntings put up for the Dharma Samsad accidentally came off while a group was in the process of tying buntings to an electric pole here for the Eid Milad celebrations.

An argument ensued as members of the other community gathered here raising objections to what they thought to be a purposeful act. In no time several people gathered at the spot adding to the tension.

On receiving information of the sparring between the two groups the police immediately reached the spot and brought the situation under control.
