Kushinagar: Tension gripped Jatampur area of Kushinagar district in Eastern Uttar Pradesh when the Pakistan’s national flag was waived during the Ashura procession on 10th of Moharram on Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred when a large crowd, gathered to take out ‘Tazia’, started waiving the Pakistan's flag which led to a clash between them and some Hindu ‘Durga Pooja Samiti’ members.

The flag, however, was removed after the tempers ran high but the tension prevailed in the district after that.
