Officials said the internet shutdown, which came into force on Friday evening, would continue till August 29. The Haryana government had suspended internet and SMS services in Nuh, besides imposing a curfew, after the July 31 clash, and restored it only on August 11.
The decision to bring out another yatra was taken at a panchayat in Palwal on August 6. Speakers at the panchayat had said that the procession – in its third year – would follow its usual route, start in Gurgaon, stop at Nalhar temple in Nuh and culminate at Radha Krishna mandir in Firozpur Jhirka, also in Nuh. The Nuh administration has denied permission, but members of VHP – its main organiser – have insisted they will bring out the procession in the month of Shravan.
