Jayant Bajbale, DCP shared details and said that at around 11 pm on 21 January, some people of the Hindu community were raising slogans in 3-4 vehicles in the Naya Nagar area of Mira Road.

“The attackers forced me to chant religious slogans,” said one of the Ram temple violence victims as quoted by TimesNow.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis warned of strict action against rioters and illegal’ constructions were demolished in Mumbai amid heavy security deployment on Monday.

Thirteen people have been arrested since a scuffle broke out between two communities on the night of January 21.

A separate incident on Monday evening saw a procession pelted with stones while passing through Thane district. An unspecified number of procession-ists and policemen providing security to the march were injured in the attack.

“I was in constant touch with the Mira-Bhyander Police Commissioner till 3.30 am on Monday. Police have been instructed to take strict action against the accused. In this case, 13 accused have been detained so far and the process of identifying the other accused is underway by checking the CCTV footage.

The police had earlier appealed to the residents of Mira Road not to pay attention to rumours.
