Jharkhand: SI among two cops injured in group clash

Godda (Jharkhand), Nov 16 (PTI) Two police personnel, including a sub-inspector, were injured in brick-batting during a clash between two groups in Jharkhand's Godda district, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place during an idol immersion procession at Pathra Chowk in Town police station area on Wednesday night, a police officer said.

The two groups, belonging to the same community, indulged in brick-batting as a police team reached the spot to bring the situation under control, he said.
