One man died by police firing in Krishnanagar

A young man has been shot dead by police in Kapilvastu. Last evening, a dispute arose between two
communities over the immersion of Lakshmipuja's statue. The growing controversy over the need to
abandon the path made to dissolve the statue of Lakshmi has now intensified. After the clash went out
of control, the police attacked 20 cell tear gas to control the situation. Since the police failed to take
control of the situation, the administration has imposed an indefinite curfew there since 11am.Local
