Mewat: The Haryana government has announced the extension of mobile internet suspension in Nuh district until August 8 due to the critical and tense law and order situation. The decision comes after violence erupted between two groups on July 31, resulting in six fatalities, including two police homeguards.
The Haryana Home Secretary's statement cited the potential misuse of internet services for spreading inflammatory material and false rumors through social media and messaging platforms as a reason for the continued suspension. The authorities fear that such content may disrupt public utilities, damage public assets, and disturb public law and order in the district.
In connection with the violence in Nuh district, 55 FIRs have been registered, leading to the arrest of 141 individuals. Additionally, 88 people were injured during the clashes. Gurugram Police also reported filing 27 FIRs and arresting 38 accused persons related to the violence in Gurugram and neighboring areas.
Haryana Home Minister, Anil Vij, alleged a bigger conspiracy behind the violence and assured that the culprits will not be spared. He urged people to maintain peace and harmony, emphasizing that adequate police and paramilitary forces are deployed to ensure the situation remains under control.
Authorities also appealed to the public to refrain from posting offensive or inflammatory content on social media. An inquiry committee is closely monitoring social media activities as part of the thorough investigation into the matter.
