§ Up to 3 p.m., 6th, two isolated assaults on individuals have been reported. A Sikh was stabbed near the Sheranwala Gate at about 11.30 a.m., and a Hindu was very severely wounded in the Changar Mohalla about 1.15 p.m. Congregations that assembled in the various mosques for the Friday prayers about midday dispersed quietly, the authorities having taken full precautions to prevent disorder. The casualty roll has now been carefully verified: the total number of deaths is 18, of Which 8 are Hindus, 6 Mussulmans and 4 Sikhs; wounded, 178, of whom 95 are Hindus, 41 Mohammedans, 41 Sikhs and 1 Christian. The rumour which has been current in certain newspapers that Sikhs are pouring into the city in large numbers from the surrounding area is false. One small party of 17 Sikhs was stopped by a magistrate on the 5th May outside the Gate of Bhati: 11 of the 17 were arrested and the other 6 ran away; this is the only incident of the kind that has occurred. Another wholly false rumour is to the effect that women have been insulted and injured by badmashes of both communities: this is not true; no women are amongst those killed or wounded.
§ No disturbance or disorder has been reported from any neighbouring district.
