GURUGRAM: Amidst the aftermath of days-long communal clashes, Gurugram witnesses a return to normalcy with the removal of Section 144. On Monday, Haryana authorities conveyed that the District Collector has issued an order to lift Section 144 CrPc. The decision was prompted by the restored tranquility in Gurugram district.
The recent strife, originating in the neighboring Nuh district, had spread to various parts of the millennium city and its surroundings, leading to the imposition of Section 144. However, with the situation now stabilizing, the authorities deemed it fit to rescind the order.
Moreover, the Gurugram Police reported the arrest of 15 individuals on Sunday night for their alleged involvement in violent acts in Sohna. These accused individuals have been remanded to judicial custody by a court in the city.
In another development, the authorities in Nuh district took action by demolishing several illegal structures, including a hotel from where stones were purportedly hurled at a religious procession last week. During this time, a mahapanchayat was held in support of four men who were arrested in connection with the arson at a mosque and the death of its junior imam.
The demolition drive, which commenced four days ago after the communal unrest, has resulted in the removal of a total of 162 illegally constructed permanent structures and 591 makeshift ones. A significant area of 57.5 acres across 37 sites has been cleared of encroachments as part of this endeavor. Deputy Commissioner Dhirender Khadgata provided updates on the ongoing efforts to restore order.
The recent events have underscored the significance of maintaining peace and unity in the region. With Section 144 lifted and efforts to curb violence and illegal structures, the authorities are working towards ensuring a secure and harmonious environment in Gurugram and its neighboring areas.
