SP Nagaur was among the injured.  The members of Rajput community were demanding a CBI probe in gangster Anandpal Singh’s death. Later, curfew has been imposed.

ADG Law and Order NRK Reddy on Thursday informed that curfew was clamped late last night in Sanvrad where tension prevailed during a rally called by Rajput community which turned violent.

Reddy said a man lost his life during firing. However, he said that police did not open fire. “In the clashes, 25 people, including Nagaur SP Paris Anil Deshmukh, IPS officer Monika Sen and 16 policemen sustained injuries,” Reddy said.

Four of the injured were referred to Jaipur in a critical condition, police sources said.

The mob also confiscated an AK-47 and a service revolver from policemen. Massive police deployment has been made and 10 persons have been detained, police said.

Scores of members belonging the Rajput community had reached Sanvrad yesterday, the native village of the slain gangster to press for their demand for a CBI inquiry in the police encounter in which he was killed.

Singh was killed in a police encounter on June 24 and the body is yet to be cremated.
