When the locals objected last night and urged them to remove the deities, hundreds of frenzy mob soon gathered and in no time stone pelting began from both sides. The situation was, however, soon taken under control by police.

According locals, the situation is very tense in the area since then and there are reports of about 400-500 outsiders gathering in the locality and surrounding pockets of Muslim houses.

Some locals are complaining that they are armed with revolvers and other arms and at present are pelting stones at Muslims’ homes and trying to instigate them. Though there are no reports of any casualty yet, but around a dozen persons have been injured.

The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, the apex body of Muslim organisations, has sent an SoS to the Hon’ble Lt. Governor, Delhi, requesting him to intervene and to provide adequate force to control the hooligans.

Concerned citizens have appealed to the police and local administration to immediately give prohibitory orders and implement 144.
