Two persons, including a 16-year-old boy, who had taken shelter in a relief camp after they were displaced during Muzaffarnagar riots, died.

Taslim (16) died at a hospital after suffering from fever while a 65-year-old man, Noruddin died at a relief camp in Loee village due to cardiac arrest on Wednesday, police said.

Some local villagers alleged that the two died because they were not treated on time. The communal clashes in Muzaffarnagar in September and its adjoining areas had claimed over 60 lives and displaced over thousands of others.
