A resident of the area who spoke to newsmen said that some traders at the section of the market where food items are sold had disagreement over an undisclosed issue last night.

Situation got escalated on Sunday when some disgruntled traders started setting wares on fire.

“Our timely intervention brought the situation under control and stopped the crisis from escalating. Normalcy has since been restored. Patrols are ongoing in the affected areas. No casualty figure available yet. We are investigating the cause of the fight.”
