Police in the Taj city are on high alert after a communal skirmish took place Saturday evening, officials said Sunday.

Two groups clashed Saturday in Wazirpura area. No one was injured.

Following the volatile situation in Muzaffarnagar, where six people, including a television journalist, were killed Saturday following communal clashes, officials decided to put security forces in Agra on high alert.

The Samajwadi Party national executive meeting to be held here Sep 11-12, followed by a rally by the Bharatiya Janata Party to be addressed by Varun Gandhi and L.K. Advani, have added to the pressure on the district administration.

Agra District Magistrate Zuhair Bin Saghir has extended the imposition of Section 144 of the IPC (which bans unlawful assembly) till Nov 3, in view of the festival season and competitive examinations in October.
