At least 24 houses belonging to Dalits were set on fire by unknown
people at Bishunpur in Bihar's Darbhanga district injuring 40 people,
following a clash between rival groups, police said today.

"A group of people of Panchob village allegedly attacked a Dalit
locality at Harchanda village late last night and set fire to the
houses following an inter-caste marriage," superintendent of police

The injured were rushed to a hospital, he said.

A case has been registered against 98 people, Vaibhav said, adding, so
far 45 of them have been arrested.

Elaborate security arrangement has been put in place in Harchanda
village as a precautionary measure, the SP said.
