There were communal clashes in Mysore on Thursday but if that’s not tragic enough, a 14-year-old boy was also killed when police fired to bring the clashes under control. Communal clashes in Mysore in Karnataka on Thursday left three dead. The situation is quiet now with prohibitory orders in place but extra forces have been called in. The clashes between two communities were reported near a mosque in Udayagiri. Two men were injured -- they died later in hospital. Police resorted to several rounds of lathi charges to bring the situation under control. “By evening seemingly there is some quiet atmosphere but we are watching the situation carefully -- getting forces from outside to supplement our forces and our forces are trying to maintain law and order. Three people died because of the clash. Police firing was by rubber bullets and that has not hurt anybody leading to death,” said V S Acharya, Home Minister, Karnataka. As in any such communally tense situation there is a need for calm and police have asked people not to listen to rumours. “We have sent more force there, more officers from the neighbouring districts, senior officers ADG law and order is reaching there. And currently situation is well under control. We confirmed that three people have died. But then people should not indulge in rumour mongering and should not believe in rumours,” said Ajai Kumar Singh, DGP, Karnataka.
