Violent Clash Erupts in Nuh, Policemen Injured, Tensions Remain High
In Haryana’s Nuh, a heated dispute between two factions escalated into a violent clash, resulting in stone-pelting and arson attacks on several vehicles. The incident occurred during a religious procession, which had been a subject of controversy due to the inclusion of Monu Manesar, a contentious figure.
The situation further worsened when Nuh Police deployed a heavy contingent of forces along the roads leading from neighboring districts to maintain strict control. As a consequence of the violent confrontation, numerous police personnel, including Inspectors and constables, were left injured, with some being in critical condition.
All the injured were promptly rushed to Gurugram’s Medanta Hospital for medical treatment. Among those admitted was DSP Sajjan Singh, who suffered severe head injuries, and Inspector Anil from Gurugram Crime Branch, who was shot in the stomach.
In response to the escalating tensions, State Home Minister Anil Vij appealed for calm and emphasized the importance of restoring peace in the region. He ordered the deployment of additional security forces from surrounding districts to bring the situation under control.
The central government was also contacted, and they sanctioned the airdropping of three companies of security forces in the area to bolster security measures. Additionally, rescue operations were initiated to aid those trapped or stranded due to the ongoing unrest.
Home Minister Vij clarified that while the Nuh SP was on leave, the charge of both Nuh and Palwal districts was under the supervision of the SP of Palwal. The latter was actively present at the scene to oversee the rescue operations and ensure the safety of the people.
Authorities have intensified efforts to de-escalate the situation and provide assistance to affected communities. The situation remains tense, and the deployment of additional forces aims to restore normalcy and prevent further violence.
