Bihar idol immersion turns violent; Residents & cops clash, 1 killed

A firing incident was reported during Durga idol immersion in Munger city of Bihar where one person was killed and several others were injured. The injured have been admitted to Sadar hospital and other private hospitals for treatment. Bihar Police has detained over 100 people after this incident and also recovered three firearms, live cartridges and empty bullets from the scene of the clash.

As chaos broke out during the ceremony, few people in the crowd opened fire. Traditionally, the idols are immersed after three days of Vijayadashami but this time the administration insisted on early immersion because of the first phase of that state's assembly election.
