According to reports, at least two senior police officers have suffered head injuries.
The clashes started as Dalit groups refused to allow a procession saying that they were not allowed to take out a similar march on Ambedkar Jayanti.
Reports suggest that a dozen bikes have been torched and a police station was also set on fire.
Members of the Dalit community had objected to loud music being played during the event. According to reports, there were rumours that an Ambedkar statue in the village was also being vandalised.
The UP government says it's doing its best to control the situation.
