New Delhi: Supporters of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal have staged protests at nearly 30 locations in Delhi over recent communal violence in neighbouring Haryana. The protests were triggered by a religious procession organized by VHP and Bajrang Dal in Nuh, Haryana, which resulted in six deaths and extensive property damage.
The Supreme Court has taken cognizance of the situation and instructed authorities to ensure tight security measures during the protests. The court has directed the deployment of adequate forces, including personnel from paramilitary forces, to prevent any escalation of violence and hate speeches. Additionally, CCTV surveillance has been mandated to record the events at all protest sites.
Delhi Police have issued a traffic advisory to alert residents of roads affected by the protests. They have taken stringent security measures in sensitive areas and emphasized that any attempts to disrupt communal harmony will be dealt with firmly.
Internet services remain suspended in affected areas, and prohibitory orders are in force to maintain law and order. The Supreme Court’s directive aims to prevent any further violence or hate-driven incidents during the ongoing protests.
