SUBANG JAYA, Nov 26 (Bernama) -- Police presence has brought calm to the area in and around the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ25, Putra Heights, where a scuffle between two rival groups took place early today over the relocation of the 100-year-old house of worship.

Bernama found that the police have closed the road leading to the temple and traffic policemen helped to facilitate smooth traffic flow in the wake of heavy congestion this morning.

The crowds of people who had gathered in the vicinity of the temple have dispersed.

The police have arrested two men in their 30s to facilitate an investigation into the commotion that took place at the temple at about 2 am.

"Eighteen cars and two motorcycles were torched in the incident. A police patrol car was also damaged by stones thrown during the incident," Selangor Police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor told reporters at the Subang Jaya District Police headquarters.

Video clips of the scuffle went viral on social media early today.

The temple was to have been relocated on Nov 22 as per a consent judgment on March 11, 2014, at the Shah Alam High Court.
