AYODHYA — Two groups of ‘sadhus’ clashed over the share of temple offerings in Ayodhya on Thursday.

The incident took place at Narsingh temple under Ayodhya Kotwali Police Station when explosion-like sounds were heard.

According to the police, the fight broke out between the temple Mahant and its priest over an issue that started a couple of months ago.
