Mobile Internet services have been suspended in some areas of the city and additional policemen deployed following the clash.

Trouble started when members of one community blocked the Delhi highway in front of Eidgah near Galta Gate on Monday night and threw stones at a Haridwar-bound bus, leaving some passengers injured.

The mob vandalised 15 vehicles. Windowpanes of cars were broken and one motorcycle was torched.

Police used tear gas and force to control the situation and disperse the crowd. At least 20 people and seven policemen were injured in the stone-pelting and subsequent clashes on Monday night.

Officials said heavy police force has been deployed in Ramganj, Transport Nagar and Galta Gate areas on Tuesday.

Kanwar yatra is an annual pilgrimage of devotees of Shiva, who march to Haridwar, Gaumukh, Gangotri and Sultanganj to fetch ‘holy water’ from the Ganga, and then walk with the water in pots, called ‘kanwars’.
