KANPUR: Curfew was imposed on Orai town, the district headquarters of Jalaun, following the killing of two Muslim religious leaders in group rivalry on Friday, the third jumma of pious month of Ramzan.

 

Reports reaching here said 48-year-old Imam Haji Fahim Khan Ghori was gunned down allegedly by a rival group while he was returning home after performing morning prayer. In retaliation hundreds of followers of the deceased beheaded 55-year-old Maulana Bashir Ahmad Quadari, attacked his family members, ransacked his house and set three shops on fire.

 

The police said the two factions were at loggerheads over taking possession of Jama Masjid building. On Friday morning, Ghori, principal of a primary school, Kukurgaon village, was shot dead by relatives of Quadari.

 

Armed with swords and other weapons, Ghori's supporters attacked the house of Quadari and beheaded him. His wife, son and two daughters were also injured.
