Twenty people, including four policemen, were today injured when two groups of different communities clashed at a village in Andhra Pradesh's Anantapur district even as the police fired in air to disperse the mob.

Tension prevailed in Kishtapadu village of Peddavadgur mandal in Anantapur this morning after members of two different communities attacked each other with stones and sticks following a row over "not allowing a religious procession" two days back, police said.

Prohibitory orders have been imposed in the village following the incident.

Four policemen were among 20 people injured as both the groups pelted each other with stones. Window-panes of two police vehicles were also damaged in the attack, they said.

The situation is now under control. Additional security force has been rushed to the spot, a senior police officer said.

Police initially resorted to lathi-charge and later fired 10 rounds in the air to disperse the clashing groups, Anantapur District Superintendent of Police Rajsekhar Babu told.
