“The clashes are reportedly over attempts to build a mosque on a disputed piece of land. In fact, two years ago a group had tried to build a mosque on this site but the Huliyamma temple trust had questioned it in court.

On Wednesday night, the mosque officials tried to resume construction but the carcass of a pig was found in the area inciting fresh violence.
