While the police registered an FIR in the incident that happened in Bhora Kalan village on Wednesday night, no arrests were reported until Thursday evening. According to a complaint filed by Subedar Najar Mohammad, Bhora Kalan village has only four houses of Muslim families.

The complainant also said that the conflict erupted on Wednesday morning, when a mob comprising about 200 people reportedly led by Rajesh Chauhan alias Babu, Anil Bhadoria, and Sanjay Vyas surrounded the mosque and entered the prayer hall where they threatened the namazis (faithful offering prayers) with expulsion from the village.

“In the night again, when we were praying inside the prayer hall in the mosque, the mob came and assaulted the namazis and even locked the prayer hall. They also threatened to kill us,” the Subedar said in his complaint, according to the police.

Since it took a while for the police to reach, the accused had fled. However, the police recovered a mobile phone from the spot which may belong to someone part of the attacking mob, officials said.

Following Mohammad’s complaint, an FIR was registered against Rajesh Chauhan, Anil Bhadoria, Sanjay Vyas and several others under sections of IPC related to rioting, trying to cause religious strife, and unlawful assembly at Bilaspur police station. “As per the complaint, an FIR has been registered and we are verifying the facts. Action will be taken as per the law,” said ASI Gajender Singh, the investigating officer.
