Curfew relaxed for eight hours in Saharanpur
Saharanpur: With the situation gradually returning to normal, curfew was Friday relaxed in the violence-hit district for eight hours.
The curfew has been relaxed from 10 AM to 6 PM, District Magistrate Sandhya Tiwari said.
All government offices were functioning and a large crowd was seen in markets. A large number of commuters were also seen at the bus stands and railway station.
However, the district administration is yet to give permission to educational institutions to reopen.
Security forces have been deployed in strength in the district which witnessed violence last week.
Curfew was clamped on Saturday in the wake of clashes between two communities over a land dispute in which three persons were killed and 34 injured. 165 shops and handcarts and 42 vehicles were set ablaze in the violence.
