Communal Violence Triggers Heightened Security Measures in Haryana

In the aftermath of communal violence that erupted in Gurgaon, Nuh, and other parts of Haryana on Monday, neighboring Delhi and Faridabad have taken swift and decisive measures to enhance security in sensitive areas to maintain peace and protect residents.

The Delhi Police have been put on high alert, with instructions to remain vigilant and prevent any untoward incidents. Their focus is to ensure the safety of citizens and to promptly respond to any potential threats. The proximity of Delhi's Southwest district to Gurgaon has led senior police officers to keep a strict vigil on the Delhi-Gurgaon and Delhi-Faridabad borders, aiming to prevent any spillover of violence into the national capital.

In Faridabad, authorities have taken a proactive stance to maintain law and order, deploying a substantial force of 4,000 police personnel. Their presence will serve as a deterrent against any acts of violence and provide reassurance to the local community. Prohibitory orders under Section 144 have been enforced across various districts to curtail gatherings that might exacerbate the situation.

The tragic events that unfolded during a 'Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra' organized by the Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in Nuh have left a lasting impact on the region. The loss of four lives, including two home guards who were attached to Kherki Daula police station in Gurgaon, has intensified the urgency to ensure the safety and security of citizens.

Amidst the unrest, a mosque in Gurgaon was targeted and set on fire, resulting in the loss of a naib imam's life. Allegedly, a mob comprising 70-80 people was responsible for this violent act, further escalating tensions in the region. To prevent the situation from escalating further, the imposition of Section 144 aims to deter any gatherings and gatherings that may contribute to the unrest.

The heightened state of alertness extends to "sensitive" areas as well, where the police are carefully monitoring the activities of local residents and youths. Both physical locations and social media platforms are being closely observed to ensure that no individual or group takes advantage of the situation to instigate violence or spread misinformation.

The police are committed to swiftly apprehending anyone found spreading fake news or inciting crowds, and severe penalties await those who attempt to disturb religious harmony or disrupt the peace.

In Faridabad, the Commissioner of Police, Vikas Arora, has issued clear instructions to arrest anyone attempting to disturb religious harmony. Section 144 is firmly in place, and stringent measures have been implemented to prevent any gathering that may fuel unrest.

The police are thoroughly monitoring social media platforms, diligently scanning for any provocative messages or rumors that may harm religious harmony. Cyber police are actively engaged in this task to curb the dissemination of misinformation and malicious content.

Notably, police personnel have also been instructed to be watchful for any suspicious movements or weapons. Patrolling and picket checking around the borders have become a vital part of the security measures to maintain a strong deterrent against potential threats.

The entire police administration in Faridabad is fully committed to maintaining peace and tranquility. Regular flag marches, 24-hour duty shifts for Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs), and consistent patrolling have been initiated to ensure the security of citizens and swift responses to any developing situations.

The joint efforts of law enforcement agencies, combined with the vigilance of local communities, are crucial in restoring calm and preventing any escalation of violence. With collective efforts, the authorities are determined to bring the situation under control and protect the safety and well-being of residents in the affected areas.
