There was riot-like situation from 10-11 PM yesterday, he said, adding that the clashes erupted over trivial issue of "parking a small vehicle".

Around 50 shops were gutted in the clashes, and hundreds of youths took to the streets to pelt stones, as the issue turned into a communal clash. There has been no permanent Police Commissioner in the city for past two months, which was also the reason that violence ran rampant and couldn't be controlled in time.

Tension escalated in the nearby areas of Gandhinagar, Moti Karanja and Rosa Bagh as well.

The worst-hit areas were Shahganj, Nawabpura, Rajabazaar and Angribaug which continued to remain calm but tense. "Some anti-social elements indulged in setting ablaze shops and vehicles in the locality", Mr Bharambe told the media.
