Lucknow: Two people, including a woman, were killed and over a dozen injured in clashes between two communities in a village in Meerut, police said Saturday.

The clashes erupted after a community objected to the playing of hymns at a temple, switched off the loudspeaker and beat up some men. Police resorted to a baton charge to control the mob.

A police officer has been suspended and a hunt is on to nab the rioters. District Magistrate Navdeep Rinwa said the National Security Act would be slapped on people who started the clashes. Police have been deployed in large numbers to prevent any further clashes.
