Though the immediate provocation for the disturbances was not known, police said the groups indulged in heavy stone-throwing on each other and set fire to some shops. The disturbances started even as some inmates of the Shah Alam Roza camp in an adjoining locality went on a token hunger strike protesting against the arrest of one of the organisers of the camp, Shafi Memon, on the apprehension that he might create trouble during the President's visit to Naroda-Patiya locality.
He, was however, released after the President's visit to the area ended without any trouble.
