Section 144 in Haryana: Communal Violence Erupts in Gurugram, Faridabad & Palwal; Internet Suspended After 2 Deaths

Written by Sanjay Kumar

Following communal clashes in parts of Haryana, several districts in the state have been put under Section 144 restrictions. As a precautionary measure, schools in various cities will remain closed on August 1, and mobile internet services have been temporarily suspended in some towns.

The violence initially erupted in Nuh district when a mob attempted to disrupt a religious procession conducted by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). This led to abrupt clashes between two groups in the area.

Tragically, during the clashes in Nuh, two home guards lost their lives. The violence soon escalated to Gurugram, where four vehicles and a shop were set on fire. The city’s police worked to restore peace and calm amid the religious tensions.

The situation worsened in other parts of Haryana as well, with the Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra, carried out by the VHP, being interrupted by a mob near Khedla Mor in Nuh district, resulting in stone pelting on the religious procession.

As a response to the escalating violence in Nuh, Section 144 was imposed in the area, and mobile internet services were suspended. Furthermore, the violence spread to Gurugram, Faridabad, Palwal, and Rewari districts, leading to prohibitory orders and Section 144 being imposed in those cities. Consequently, educational institutes in Gurugram and Palwal will also remain closed on August 1.

In the wake of these events, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar expressed his distress over the incident and urged the public to maintain peace in the state through social media.
