Three people were killed in fresh incidents of violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar district on Wednesday.

In the incident on evening, three Muslim men were beaten to death while another was injured in clashes between local Muslim and Hindu communities at Muhammadpurraisingh village, senior local official Kaushal Raj told Press Trust of India news agency.

Police told the BBC that it was sparked off by a dispute between two families.

Eight persons were arrested in connection with the latest round of violence and security was enhanced in the entire district where tension ran high, officials said.

More than 60 people died in the Hindu-Muslim clashes which erupted on 7 September in the town of Muzaffarnagar.

Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, saw serious Hindu-Muslim riots in 1992 after the demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya by hardline Hindus.
