At least six people have been killed in clashes between two communities over local body polls in the western Indian state of Gujarat, police said Wednesday.
Xinhua news agency reported the clashes occurred at the Chhasra village in the state's Kutch district Tuesday night.
According to the police, some members of a community held a grudge against the other after facing defeat in local polls.
"An argument broke out and soon people from both sides suddenly attacked each other with sharp weapons, resulting in the death of six people," local police chief M. S. Bharada told the media.
Two people who sustained injuries in the incident have been hospitalised, he added.
