Communal tensions in Bhagalpur, Bihar have grown after local Hindu and Muslim groups clashed with each other over installation of Hanuman idol at a piece of land that reportedly belongs to the government.

The incident happened yesterday in an area called Habibpur in Bhagalpur when local Hindus tried to install a new idol of Lord Hanuman at a place where an old dilapidated idol has been resting for around 50 years.

This move was resisted by local Muslims who claimed that this was an attempt to grab government land by making a new temple. Some complained about the same to the police after which forces arrived at the place and took away both the idols of Lord Hanuman.
