While initially feared as communal violence, authorities clarified that the clash stemmed from a minor altercation between the two groups. It was not driven by communal tensions but rather a confrontation during the rally.

The Mira Bhayandar – Vasai Virar (MBVV) police acted promptly to defuse the situation, ensuring that it did not escalate into a full-blown communal conflict. DCP (Zone I), Jayant Bajbal, reassured the public that no communal flare-up had been reported, urging citizens not to succumb to rumors. A thorough investigation is underway, with CCTV footage being reviewed to identify and apprehend individuals involved in the clash.
