2 killed, 7 hurt in Vadodara violence
Vadodara, May 1, 2006
Two persons were killed and seven others were injured following violence due to protests against the demolition of an 'encroached' dargah by the Vadodara Municipal Corporation on Monday.

The violence has led to a curfew in the area, police said.

Two locals of Yakoutpura, who were among the protesters, succumbed to bullet injuries after police opened fire at them to quell the violence. Tear gas shells were also lobbed, senior police officials said.

The trouble started when the VMC squad started demolishing the 200-year-old dargah and locals of the area began shouting slogans and later attacked officials involved in the demolition, Vadodara city police commissioner Deepak Swarup said.

A policeman hit during the stone pelting was also among the seven injured.

"Police have intensified patrolling, apart from clamping curfew in all the sensitive areas," Swarup said.
