The violence reportedly took place after police detained a drunk youth for causing a disturbance in the area.  This apparently angered some locals who attacked the local police outpost. At least 9 on-duty Police officials were injured and they had to resort to blank firing to control the situation.

 

This is a developing story. More details are awaited.
