Gurugram (Haryana): Rapid Action Force personnel conducted a flag march in Gurugram's Badshahpur early on Wednesday, morning following the clashes that broke out in Nuh district of the State.

Security has been strengthened in the districts adjoining Nuh -- Faridabad, Palwal, and Gurugram-- in light of the violence that broke out between two groups on July 31.

On Tuesday, fresh violence was reported from Gurugram in Badshahpur and on Sohna road.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Varun Dahiya (Crime), Gurugram said today, "All schools, colleges and workplaces are functioning normally. There are no restrictions on the movement of traffic. The internet is also operational. I appeal to all to not pay heed to rumours on social media. If anyone wants to report any information, they can reach the helpline number '112'.”

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar yesterday said he suspected a “conspiracy” behind Monday’s clashes.


Khattar called the incident “unfortunate” and said that clashes broke out at several places and that a big conspiracy seems behind the violence.

"This is an unfortunate incident. A Yatra was being organised during which some people conspired an attack Yatris and the police. Violent incidents were reported at several places. There seems to be a big conspiracy behind this,” said Khattar.

Haryana Deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala, however, said that the violence in Nuh district could have been avoided if the organisers of the yatra had given complete information about the yatra to the district administration.

“Strict action will be taken against those found responsible,” said Chautala, leader of the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) on the incidents of violence in the state.

A total of five people have died including two home guards who were shot dead in Monday’s clash in Nuh. The deceased home guards identified as Neeraj and Gursevak were deployed at Khedali Daula police station.
