It has been four days since communal violence singed Bhadrak in Odisha, around three hours from the capital Bhubaneswar. But eight separate police cases and 73 arrests later, the nondescript little town is still simmering with tension. A curfew has been imposed in Bhadrak ever since a Facebook post sparked communal tension and violence. This is the first time in 26 years that the area, known to be a town of traders with a 40 per cent Muslim population, has seen such tension. Shops have been burnt down at least at eight locations, though there have been no reports of any injuries or casualties.
