Shahjahanpur:  Three people were injured after volunteers clashed among themselves during a "Tiranga" rally being taken out by some organisations in Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur on Wednesday, police said. Two people were arrested following the incident, police added.

The rally was taken out by activists of the Hindu Yuva Vahini and Bajrang Dal in the wake of the killing of a youth, Chandan Gupta, in Kasganj last week.

One of the workers hurled a stone while another was beaten up allegedly by fellow volunteers, he said.

"In the stone-pelting, Brijesh Kumar, Pradyuman and Govind were injured," Mr Ahmed said.

Senior police officer Subhash Chandra Shakya said a case was filed and two people identified as Brijesh Kumar and Govind were arrested.
