Nuh: In a continued effort to combat illegal constructions in Nuh, Haryana, the district administration took action on Sunday by demolishing a restaurant-hotel that had been misused by troublemakers during recent violent incidents. The demolition operation was supported by a team of police personnel to ensure security.
Vinesh Kumar, the district town planner, confirmed that the “Sahara Family Restaurant” had been erected without proper authorization. This same establishment was identified as the site from which miscreants launched stone-throwing attacks on a religious procession. Kumar emphasized that the building was entirely unauthorized and had previously received notices from governmental authorities. The unlawful hotel-restaurant had become a focal point of unrest, necessitating decisive action.
Prior to this, the Nuh district administration had already demolished more than 45 “illegal” shops in the Nalhar Road area on Saturday morning. The area had witnessed clashes between two groups on July 31, resulting in tragic fatalities, including two Home Guards. The suspension of internet services in Nuh was also extended until Tuesday as part of the measures to maintain public order.
Haryana police had made significant progress in addressing the violence, with 141 arrests and the registration of 55 First Information Reports (FIRs) related to the disturbances. The toll from the confrontations, which erupted during a religious procession, stood at six fatalities and 88 injuries.
Gurugram Police had likewise taken swift action, filing 27 FIRs and detaining 38 individuals in connection with the violence in Gurugram and neighboring districts that followed the Nuh clashes. Assistant Police Commissioner Varun Kumar Dhahiya assured that efforts were ongoing to maintain peace and control in the region.
Home Minister Anil Vij underscored the commitment to bring the culprits behind the violence to justice, pointing to a potential broader conspiracy. He stressed that those responsible for the unrest would be held accountable, including for any damage to public property. The Home Minister appealed for calm and unity, ensuring that adequate law enforcement personnel were deployed to ensure stability.
Moreover, in a bid to prevent the spread of inflammatory content, the government has established an inquiry committee to monitor and investigate activities on social media platforms. The Home Minister urged the public to refrain from sharing offensive or incendiary material, reinforcing the ongoing efforts to restore order and investigate the underlying causes of the disturbances.
