GURGAON: A day after shutting down internet and bulk SMS services, the Nuh administration on Saturday imposed restrictions under Section 144 CrPC till Monday.
Deputy commissioner Dhirendra Khadgata said that in keeping with the curbs, no one would be allowed to carry any weapons like swords, knives or even sticks. The assembly of more than five persons would not be allowed as well.
Late on Saturday, the Nuh administration announced that schools and colleges would remain closed on Monday.
The move comes amid renewed calls by right-wing outfits for a Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra on Monday after the previous one on July 31 was disrupted because of the communal clash. Police have said that the internet shutdown is aimed at preventing provocative social media content and misinformation from being circulated.
The administration and panchayats have also decided to organise ‘tikri pehra’ in around 400 villages for the next two days. Under this, local residents along with police will patrol the outskirts of their villages to stop outsiders from entering and causing trouble.
“The order today is to avoid any communal tension, violence and damage to human lives and property. We will take legal action against anyone violating the order,” the DC said.
Police sources said the chief executive officer of the Nuh zilla panchayat would be in charge of the ‘tikri pehras’ in different villages. Block development officers, tehsildars and sub-tehsildars will also be part of the initiative. The SHOs of respective police stations will coordinate with the villagers for manpower and other support.
The police chiefs of nearby districts, meanwhile, held meetings through Saturday to decide their strategies for the proposed yatra on Monday. The police in the city appealed to people not to participate in the procession.
In Faridabad, police chief Rakesh Arya held a meeting with senior officials and reviewed the security arrangements. He asked his team to keep tabs on provocative social media posts and take action against any user found circulating such content. The police in the district have formed an anti-riot team of 500 personnel.
