Deccan Chronicle - - Oped -

Two per­sons were killed when po­lice opened fire in the Dadar area to­day, as fresh vi­o­lence broke out in sev­eral parts of Bom­bay within hours of the ex­piry at five this morn­ing of the overnight cur­few.

To­day’s deaths brought the num­ber of ca­su­al­ties to 10 in the two days of dis­tur­bances sparked by an ag­i­ta­tion launched by the Shiv Sena over the bor­der dis­pute be­tween

Bel­gaum.

It was of­fi­cially learnt that 20 rounds were fired by the po­lice this morn­ing in the Dadar area.

It was, how­ever, not clear im­me­di­ately whether this in­cluded the oc­ca­sion when the Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Mr. Re­beiro fired shots to dis­perse a group of peo­ple who were try­ing to cut down a huge tree near the Dadar Po­lice sta­tion, pre­sum­ably to use it for block­ade pur­poses.
