Yadgir: Tension prevailed in Yadgir District on Sunday May 29 in connection with a dispute that arose over denying entry to Dalits in a Hanuman Temple, the police said.

The Police have clamped prohibitory orders in Amalihala and Huvinahalli villages of Hunasagi taluk in Yadgir district, a Police Officer said, adding the situation has been tense since the last four days.

The issue has resulted in a face-off between the Dalits and people belonging to the upper caste in the two villages.

According to the police, Dalits of Hoovinahalli village were denied entry to Hanuman temple located in Amalihala village four days ago.

The situation further seemed to be slipping out of hands following a confrontation on Saturday May 28.

The denial of entry to Dalits was condemned by Dalit organisations, and they had also staged a protest.

Yadgir Superintendent of Police, C.B. Vedhamurthy has visited both the villages.

Meanwhile, senior police officers and district authorities have managed to get a breakthrough over the issue. Eight persons of the Dalit community were taken to the temple with police security on Saturday.

The situation, however, continues to remain tense in both the villages. The security has been beefed up to prevent any untoward incident.
