The violence broke out at around 8 pm on Tuesday night when a group of RSS workers were returning after a ‘Path Sanchalan’ programme on the occasion of Makar Sankranti. The group was allegedly infuriated on hearing some offensive comments on their uniform allegedly by members of Muslim community who are majority in the area.  

Verbal abuses transformed into physical assault and firing. One was shot dead at the spot while two others succumbed to injuries while being brought to Udaipur for treatment. The bodies have been shifted to the state morgue at the hospital here.


Shops remained closed in sensitive areas and people didn’t get out of their houses. Amid elaborate security arrangements, the bodies of the RSS workers who were shot dead in the firing which took place on Tuesday at Kotdi were cremated at their native places.

The bodies of Bhanwar Singh (45) and Dinesh Gaeri (25) which were claimed by their family members from the mortuary at Udaipur were cremated amid tight police security.


Three persons were killed while six others injured in a communal clash which broke out between two communities in Rajasthan’s Pratapgarh district, prompting the authorities to impose curfew in the town and nearby areas.

The clash broke out last night when some youths were returning home after a programme when another group of four-five youth had a verbal spat with them.

“Within minutes, over hundred persons from both the sides gathered at a bus stand and some men from the minority community opened fire leaving several people injured,” SP Pratapgarh U K Chhanwal told PTI.

This led to exchange of fire and stone pelting from both the sides. The youths, who opened fire first, sped away towards another nearby village Moheda and opened fire there also in which some locals got injured.
