Peace at Tauru after the Sunday clash
The violent clashes resulting from the death of a 22-year old man seems to have finally come to rest. The quiet and peaceful Tauru, a small town near Gurgaon, was in news for the violent clashes that resulted into 15 people getting injured. Two days after the clash, police claim that the situation is totally under control.

Ashok, SHO, Tauru said, ''The matter has been taken up by the police and everything is under control now. Cases have been registered in regard to this case. The riot, though, was a shameful act. We have put in our best to deal with this case. For the time being, I have been directed not to speak much about the incident.''

The incident took place on Sunday morning at 7:30 am when a 22 years old man was killed by a dumper. Dharamvir Singh, a laborer, was on a bike with a fellow rider when a dumper knocked them down. Singh, died on the spot whereas, the other was rushed to a hospital. The locals, furious by then, started beating the driver and his assistant. The police tried to stop it and rescue the bleeding drivers. They also tried to take the two to a hospital but was stopped by the locals.

The riot caught heat when members of one community opened fire on another and the police, kept doing nothing. The attackers kept firing gunshots in the presence of 40 or so armed policemen for a long time.

An AAP member confirmed that Yogendra Yadav, who was the Lok Sabha candidate from Gurgaon, visited Tauru. Agitated kin of the victim, asked Yadav to leave the place as some residents accused him of trying to woo a particular community.

A video, apparently clicked on a cellphone when Yadav visited the family of the 22-year-old man whose death in an accident triggered the clash. The video had gone viral on the social by that evening.
