Violent clashes on Saturday broke out between two communities over a land dispute in Saharanpur with the two sides indulging in brick batting and arson, leaving three  people dead and prompting authorities to impose curfew in the district.

ADG (Law and Order) Mukul Goel confirms death of three persons in Saharanpur.  Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav announced compensation of Rs 10 lakh and Rs 50,000 to the injured.

Tension prevailed in the district and additional forces have been rushed to bring the situation under control. "As per the information received so far there was a dispute over land between two communities which escalated on Saturday morning," Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Mukul Goel told media persons.

He said curfew has been clamped following the clashes. The dispute escalated when members of one community started construction work at the site in Kutubsher area in the wee hours on Saturday morning, leading to violent clashes. Both the sides indulged in heavy brick batting, arson and opened fire and there were reports of several shops being gutted in the clash, police said.

In a bid to control the situation, police used force and fired rubber bullets. "13 companies of PAC, RAF and CRPF have been sent to the spot as two persons are reportedly killed in the incident," Additional Director General of Police (law and order) Mukul Goel said. Even as curfew has been clamped, sporadic incidents of clashes were reported and tension prevails.
