The ongoing extensive effort to demolish “illegal” constructions in Nuh has ignited a contentious issue between two communities. Over the course of three days, Haryana authorities have taken down numerous unauthorized structures in the violence-affected Nuh district. Officials mentioned that some of these structures were owned by individuals supposedly involved in the recent clashes.

Haryana’s Home Minister, Anil Vij, asserted that there existed a significant underlying motive behind the communal violence in Nuh. However, he emphasized that the state government wouldn’t hastily draw conclusions without conducting a comprehensive investigation into the violence that transpired between two groups during a religious procession. Vij also indicated that the restoration of internet services would occur once the situation improves.

Anil Vij stated, “People climbed hills next to the temples, had lathis in their hands and gathered at entry points, all this is not possible without a proper plan. Bullets were fired… Someone must have arranged these. Bullets were being fired. From where did weapons come …? All this is part of a plan.”

He further mentioned, “We are getting information that firing incidents were pre-planned… stones were collected on the roofs and people went to the hills and opened fire. We are collecting information and taking action against the people responsible.”

The Haryana home minister reported that the number of arrests has reached 216, with 80 people being placed under preventive detention. Additionally, 104 First Information Reports (FIRs) have been filed in connection with the communal violence that erupted on July 31 in the Nuh district, when mobs attacked a religious procession. Opposition members called for an investigation into alleged intelligence lapses, but Vij claimed he had no information about any intelligence input regarding potential tension buildup.

On Saturday, the district administration razed illegal constructions at 12 different sites, including 2.6 acres of land around Nalhar Medical College. Sub-divisional magistrate Ashwani Kumar explained, “These were illegal constructions. Notices were already given to owners of the demolished structures. The owners of some illegal structures were also involved in the violence during the Braj Mandal religious yatra. The demolition drive will continue.”

Khadgata, the newly appointed deputy commissioner of Nuh, indicated that such locations had been identified by various departments for action against illegal construction and anti-social activities.

In response to the migration of workers from Gurugram after the violence, district officials visited slum areas to encourage people to resume their daily activities without fear. Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav interacted with individuals near Sector 58 and 70, aiming to build confidence and maintain law and order.

Teams from the Rapid Action Force were deployed across the district, and the Haryana police were actively pursuing the arrest of individuals engaged in anti-social activities.

Meanwhile, in Haryana’s Rohtak district, a case was registered after a cleric reported a stone-pelting incident at the gate of a mosque around 10:30pm on Friday. Additional Superintendent of Police Medha Bhushan and the police force visited the site in response to the complaint.

Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala conveyed that both media and social media were under surveillance, and those found to be inciting violence would face severe consequences.
