Vadodara: Two groups clashed and hurled stones at each other over putting up a religious flag in Savli town in Gujarat’s Vadodara district, a police official said on Monday, adding that 36 people have been arrested.

The incident occurred on Saturday night after a group of people objected to members of another community trying to put up a religious flag alongside their flag on an electricity pole in Dhamiji ka Dera locality, a Savli police station official said.

“The matter escalated and both the communities started hurling stones at each other. Nobody was injured but a vehicle and a shop were damaged by rioters,” said Savli police station sub-inspector, A.R. Mahida.
