Curfew relaxed in violence-hit Maharashtra towns

      Communal clashes had broken out at in Miraj town and Sangli city last week. Trouble started on September 3 (Anant Chaturdashi Day), when some pro-Hindutva organisations tried to raise an arch on the immersion procession route, depicting the killing of the Mughal warrior Afzal Khan by Maratha King Shivaji. This led to group clashes. An all party meeting was held in Mumbai on Tuesday during which a peace formula was worked out. Meanwhile, Sarvajanik Ganesh mandal representatives in Miraj have decided to immerse the idols tomorrow.
