An altercation over a badminton

match snowballed into a clash between two groups at Muchibazar

area in the city and two persons have been arrested in

connection with it on Saturday, police said.

Search is on for the others named in the FIR lodged by

the police in the incident.

Police said the altercation over the badminton match

took place on Friday night and led to the clash between the

two groups. While one group ransacked several shops and houses

immediately after the incident, another group retaliated the

next morning.

Several shops were ransacked and a house used for

ceremonies and social functions and a godown were vandalised

on Saturday morning, he said.

While locals blockaded a nearby road demanding the

arrest of the culprits, the area's Trinamool Congress MLA

Sadhan Pandey, who is also a state minister went to the area

and urged the warring sides to restore peace.
