Curfew relaxed for few hours in Sirsa, normalcy returning
Sirsa: Curfew was relaxed for few hours in trouble-torn Sirsa with normalcy slowly returning in the area after two days of restriction clamped in the wake of a clash between followers of Dera Sacha Sauda and a group of Sikhs.
The district administration relaxed the curfew in the morning from 6 am to 10 am, while the afternoon relaxation has been given for nearly five hours.
Deputy Commissioner J Ganesan, who patrolled the markets and interacted with locals, said the markets have been opened for people to purchase necessary items.
He appealed to people not to believe in rumours and bring those to the notice of authorities who try to vitiate peace.
"Police personnel have been deployed at different places... The district administration is completely committed towards maintaining law and order in the district," Ganesan said.
He said that all the educational institutions including schools, colleges and other institutions would remain closed till November 28.
Meanwhile, all government offices including various Boards and Corporations remained closed today.
Para-military and Rapid Action Force personnel along with police have been deployed in strength in the town, where the situation remained peaceful today.
The violence on November 24 had left 12 people injured and six vehicles badly damaged near Balmiki Chowk.
