Two people were killed and two others injured after a fight allegedly broke out between a group of customers and employees of a fast-food joint over a difference of Rs 40 in a bill in Meerut's TP Nagar, police said today.
Meerut in Uttar Pradesh has become a giant garbage tip, with the city's striking municipal sanitation workers dumping fetid trash on all major roads over the last four days. They want a pay hike announced last year to be implemented.
Meerut police on Friday used batons to disperse protesting students caught in a turf war between the Vice Chancellor and Registrar of Chaudhary Charan Singh University, who have been at loggerheads for the last several months. Seven students were arrested and a few sustained minor injuries.
