Saharanpur violence: Curfew imposed; UP govt sacks top administrators

Saharanpur violence Curfew imposed UP govt sacks top administrators

Even as the Uttar Pradesh government scrambled with firefighting measures, violence-hit Saharanpur remained on the edge on Wednesday, after another murder was reported in the wake of inter-caste clashes that have rocked the city since early May.

The situation remained tense in the district, especially around Shabbirpur village, which is at the heart of the current crisis. In response, the state government imposed Section 144 (curfew) in the region to clamp down on stray incidents of violence and to disrupt local leaders' attempts to mobilise crowds, according to DNA. Mobile internet and messaging services were also suspended in the district to prevent rumour mongering. Besides this, the state government also sacked the district's top administrative officers.
