In his complaint, the advocate explained to the Commission how a targeted attack was mounted against the houses of the minority Hindus in the Bhainsa town and burned their houses.
He said the mob of about 1000 had also pelted stones on the burning houses to prevent the dwellers from coming out of the house. “With an intention to kill them by burning alive, the mob has looted and burnt belongings and also two-wheelers belonging to Hindus, the incident continued till 10 am next morning, of the incident took place on January 12,” he said.
That apart, the mob further pelted stones on policemen to prevent them from coming to the area, resulting in total damage of 18 Hindu houses and belongings including, their clothes, documents, schoolbooks, utensils, grocery, etc. There is partial damage to 40 Hindu houses, total damage of about 70 two-wheelers and auto-rickshaws.
The attack also left several policemen injured, which resulted in Hindus go without food and shelter, and subjecting the innocent Hindus under fear, agony and threat to their life and property.
He said the Hindus in the area are leaving their houses, which is a direct violation of basic fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution of India.

Telangana : Communal violence in Bhainsa, 18 houses set on fire, bikes torched
Communal tensions erupted in Telangana late on Sunday when clashes broke out between Hindus and Muslims in Bhainsa town of Nirmal district.
As per reports, 18 houses were set on fire in Korbagalli street and several bikes were torched. The Police were attacked as well when they attempted to put an end to the mob violence. Also, reportedly, the water hoses of fire tenders were cut when they tried to put out the flames.
The cause of the violence was reportedly a minor incident that escalated into a full-fledged brawl with groups from both communities resorting to stone-pelting. “It was a petty issue which led to violence. Some people of a community were making noise by removing silencers from their bike and members of other community took objection. Arguments took place between members of both communities and later it led to stone pelting before some members got indulged into arson,” a senior police officer was quoted by TOI as saying.
Legal Rights Protection Forum alleged that the mob of Jihadis attacked, looted houses and torched vehicle.
