Internet shutdown and curfew continues in Karauli today, several senior officials are deployed to safety
Karauli: Curfew was imposed in Karauli districts in Rajasthan again today. Communal violence erupted here on Saturday after rocks were thrown at a motorcycle rally. 35 people were injured in the violence. On Saturday, some people had organized a Nav Samvatsar bike rally here for the Hindu New Year. Violence erupted after stones were thrown at the rally. Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot said the police will take strict action against those who are criminals in the incident. He said some anti-social elements were making the situation worse and the police would take strict action against them. The Chief Minister appealed to the public to keep the peace.
Rajasthan ADG Law and Order Hawa Singh Ghumaria said so far 36 people have been arrested in the incident and the situation is now under control. Rajasthan Police said mobile internet has been shut down in Karauli to prevent rumors and strict surveillance is maintained against anti-social elements. Administrative staff are closely monitoring the situation in Karauli, 170 km from Jaipur.
According to Karauli police, the bike rally was passing through a predominantly Muslim area to celebrate Nav Samvatsar when some people threw stones. Seeing this, the violence increased. The disbelievers set shops on fire and a bicycle was also burned. Several other motorcycles were vandalized. Regarding the violence that erupted after the stone-throwing at the rally, CM Ashok Gehlot said he immediately discussed the matter with the DGP and the police administration. In this case, the police will take strict action against all those who are criminals. The Chief Minister said it has always been the tradition in Rajasthan or whether Hindu-Muslim Sikhs live in harmony with each other. The police are doing their job, but the elders of society should also come forward to maintain peace and order. Chief Minister Gehlot said that there are unserious people who defame the whole society. At the same time, I instructed these people to take the strictest measures possible. I urge the people of Karauli to keep the peace.
