Guwahati (Assam): Prohibitory orders were imposed on Assam's Hailakandi town after communal clashes broke out between two religious communities outside a mosque today. Sources said rioters threw stones and set vehicles ablaze, forcing the police to launch a baton-charge and fire warning shots in the air.

A few days ago, unidentified people damaged the vehicles of people visiting the mosque. The mosque management had filed a police complaint at the time. This afternoon, a group of youngsters allegedly began throwing stones at devotees who had assembled outside the mosque in Marwari Patty area to offer prayers. As many as 15 people, including three constables, were injured in the violence that followed.
