Visiting communal clashes-hit Bhainsa town in Telangana, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy has assured government support to the victims in rebuilding their destroyed homes. Reddy, who was accompanied by state BJP president K Laxman and other leaders, met the victims on Sunday and assured that justice would be done to all, a release from his office said here. Talking to reporters, the Union Minister of State for Home said he was told by local residents that the attack was planned.

"Both sides suffered," he said adding a decision would be taken on the issue soon. Reddy also held a meeting with the district officials at Bhainsa. Laxman said the BJP would demand a CBI probe if the state government does not agree to a judicial inquiry into the clashes. He targeted the AIMIM over the clashes at Bhainsa.

A trivial issue took a violent turn when members belonging to two different communities clashed at Bhainsa near Adilabad on January 12 leaving 19 people, including eight police officials, injured. Police had registered more than 10 cases and arrested over 60 people from both the communities. Several houses were damaged due to fire and a number of two-wheelers were completely burnt during the clashes.
