12 injured in Chakwal clash
CHAKWAL: As many as 12 people were injured in a clash between two sects at Amirpur Mangan village on Tuesday. A majlis was going on in Imam bargah while the adjacent mosque was vacant. Suddenly about 70 people came out of the Imam bargah and chanted slogans against the rival sect. Later, people from the mosque’s roof started throwing stones towards them.
Later, about 100 people ransacked the Imam bargah. After getting information, a heavy contingent of police reached the spot and resorted to tear gas to disperse the rival groups, but in vain. Both groups also exchanged gunshots. The Dhudial police have registered cases against people of both sects, including Tehrik Khadam-e-Ahle Sunnat Qazi Zahoorul Hussain and former union council nazim Chaudhry Ghazanfar Ali Khan, under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
