Haryana’s chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar confirms that six people had died as a result of the unrest in the Nuh district, even as he reaffirmed his call for everyone to maintain peace in the State.
The chief minister added that a total of 116 people have been arrested in connection with the violence in Nuh that claimed the lives of six people including two Home Guards.
“Six people including two Home Guards and four civilians have died in the incident. 116 people have been arrested till now. They have been taken on remand. Those found guilty will not be spared. We are committed to the safety of the public,” Khattar said.
“The overall situation in the state is normal. Appeal to the public to maintain peace, calm, and brotherhood,” the Haryana chief minister said.
A total of 20 paramilitary forces and 30 Haryana Police units have been deployed in the State, he said.
“14 units were sent to Nuh, three to Palwal, two to Faridabad, and one to Gurugram. At present, the situation is normal in Nuh and surrounding areas, security agencies have been put on alert mode,” CM said.
Faridabad, Palwal, and Gurugram, the districts that border Nuh, have increased security following the July 31 conflict between two factions.
New incidents of violence were reported from numerous additional Haryana districts on August 1. Violence was reported in Badshahpur and on Sohna Road in Gurugram.
Mobile internet services have been temporarily blocked throughout the area, and Section 144 has been put into effect for 48 hours starting at midnight on July 31 in Nuh.
The violence in Nuh district, according to Haryana’s deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala, might have been prevented if the yatra’s organizers had provided information about the yatra to the district administration.
Nishant Yadav, the deputy commissioner for Gurugram, stated that everything was completely under control, that everything had returned to normal, and that the markets had reopened.
“In Gurugram, the situation is totally under control, Sohna was our main focus area, a peace committee meeting has taken place there, normalcy restored and markets have opened. We have conducted a flag march as well,” Deputy Commissioner Yadav said.
He further said, “In Gurugram one death was reported in Sector 57 mosque, 5 vehicles were torched in Sohna and two to three shops have been vandalized”.
