Following the violence, Section 144 of the CrPC was imposed in the town. Eight persons, including two policemen, were injured in the clashes in different parts of the town on Sunday night, reportedly triggered by an accident involving two motorcycles. When some locals objected to rash and negligent driving, it led to a clash that soon spread to other parts of the town. The situation is completely under control now, in-charge Superintendent of Police Vishnu Warrier said.

The Minister, stating that peace and harmony were fundamental to the progress of a civilised society, said rumour and hate-mongering are being spearheaded by divisive forces.
Rama Rao said he had asked Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali and Director-General of Police M Mahendar Reddy to take stern action to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“My appeal to the people of Bhainsa not to fall prey to rumours and hate-mongering spearheaded by divisive forces. Govt will stand by you to maintain law and order effectively,” (sic) he tweeted.

Mahmood Ali, replying to Rama Rao’s tweet, said he spoke to the DGP, the SP and the District Collector on Sunday night and that the situation in Bhainsa was completely under control. The injured were given treatment and sufficient force was already deployed, he said.

“Normalcy is ensured. Monitoring the situation from time to time, personally,” Mahmood Ali tweeted.
