Neemuch (Madhya Pradesh), May 17: After a dispute erupted between two groups over the installation of a Hanuman statue, Section 144 was imposed in Madhya Pradesh's Neemuch city.

This clash reportedly took place after a group of men allegedly installed a Hanuman statue in a dargah in the Old Court area. "People of one community alleged that a temple is being constructed on a dargah," Neemuch Superintendent of Police Suraj Verma stated.

"This led to a fight. Both the sides pelted stones at each other. The police used force to control the situation," he added.
