Seven policemen were injured following a clash with local protestors here on Tuesday.

The protestors turned violent in Mumbai's Chembur Kurla area following the last rite procession of a man who had committed suicide alleging police in-action in case of his missing daughter.

A large number of locals took part in the last rite procession of the victim. However, during the same, some locals started pelting stone and also damaged four police vehicles. Police also resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the angry mob.
