Anand, Jan 24 (UNI) One person died and incidents of arson also took place when violence between two communities broke out in Akbarpur village under Khambhat police station of Anand district in central Gujarat.
According to police, the dead person who had sustained bullet injury has been identified as local resident Vinod F Chawda.
