Police deployed a heavy force to avoid any untoward incident there. ” Our town has always been peaceful. It never witnessed any attempt to take out processions on the occasion of Valmiki’s birth anniversary in the past. All who were toiling for the procession today were outsiders, ” said Manoj Nayak, a member of the Landhaura municipal board. The arrested were from organizations like VHP and Bajrang. They were later released on personal bonds. ” We would not allow a new trend in the name of religious celebrations in Landhaura and side by side ensure peace and normalcy there, ” said Manglaur CO Pankaj Gairola.
