The report contains details about the arrests made by the UP Police and circumstances leading to the death of Chandan, an official said in New Delhi.

The police have also arrested some leaders and workers of the Rashtriya Lok dal (RLD), who were trying to enter the strife-torn areas in a bid to meet the people affected in the violence.

Meanwhile, the BJP MLA from Kasganj demanded that Chandan Gupta, the youth killed in communal clashes in the town, should be accorded the status of a "martyr".

Lucknow, Jan 29 Uttar Pradesh Govenor Ram Naik today termed the Kasganj communal clash as a "blot" on the state and asked the government to initiate measures to ensure such incidents did not recur. "These miscreants were backed by some local politicians, who had grudges against police and local administration, who in the past came down heavily on their illegal sand-mining activities", he said.

On Wednesday, some pockets in Kasganj remained tense though no fresh incident of violence was reported in the past 24 hours.
