New Delhi: In an attempt to restore peace in the city’s Hauz Qazi area, both the communities met on Tuesday evening and decided to put an end to the tension which arose two days ago after a parking dispute snowballed into a communal clash.
“We want peace in the area as it was earlier. We condemn the incident and the culprits, who have vandalised the temple, must be punished,” he added.
Bittoo, from the Durga Mandir Street, said: “People from both the communities are living here happily since decades. The market will open from Wednesday and the locals would bring back peace in the area with mutual cooperation.”
The meeting which was held at the local police station, was chaired by senior police officials in the presence of people from both the communities.
