Tension prevailed in this district of Uttar Pradesh after a Tulsi plant was reportedly placed at a newly-constructed intersection adjacent to an 'Eidgah' (religious place) here, police said today.
Circle Officer Harish Bhadoria said members of minority community damaged the plant yesterday, leading to tension in the area.
Tulsi is a medicinal plant revered by Hindus.
A police team reached the spot and brought the situation under control.
Security has been tightened in the area, the officer added.
