Nawada Becomes 8th District in Bihar Facing Communal Violence

In a fresh bout of violence in Bihar, clashes between two communities were reported from Nawada after a deity’s idol was vandalised by some miscreants in Nawada on Friday. “It was a matter of an idol being vandalised by some miscreants, which led to the communities coming face-to-face; situation is now under control,” said District Magistrate Kaushal Kumar. According to reports, the resultant violence from the incident led to torching of shops in the area and vehicles being damaged. The Internet services have been suspended in the area and the police presence has been increased. It must be said that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has a big challenge on his hands as seven out of 38 districts in the state are in the grip of communal tension.
