NEW DELHI: Twelve people — including three with serious gunshot wounds — and six police personnel were injured in a clash between two communities in west Delhi’s Tilak Vihar on Thursday.

According to the police, seven private vehicles were also set on fire and five police vehicles, including additional commissioner (west) V Renganathan’s official car, were damaged by an angry mob that resorted to stone pelting.

The police reportedly fired six rounds in the air and used over a dozen teargas shells to disperse the mob. The injured were taken to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, where the condition of one person who received a bullet in the stomach and two policemen was said to be serious.

Trouble began around 4pm when four bike-borne youngsters from one community were roughed up by some people from the other community for riding their motorcycle in a rash and negligent manner in the latter’s colony.
