2 Killed, 7 Cops Injured In Violence During Haryana Religious Procession

On 31st July 2023, a tragic incident took place in Haryana’s Nuh where a home guard lost his life, and more than 50 people, including policemen, got hurt. The reason behind this unfortunate event was that some troublemakers threw stones and set cars on fire during a religious procession

According to an official, around twelve policemen got injured during the clashes. Among them, eight were rushed to Gurugram’s Medanta Hospital for medical treatment.

It’s really concerning to know that Hodal Deputy Superintendent of Police, Sajjan Singh, was shot in the head, and an inspector was injured in the stomach.

Sadly, Neeraj, the home guard, passed away while receiving treatment at the hospital.

The police said that a religious procession called ‘Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra’ organized by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, started from Gurugram’s Civil Lines, led by Gargi Kakkar, who is the BJP district president. But unfortunately, the procession got halted by a group of men near Khedla Mod in Nuh.

During the procession, some people threw stones at it, and sadly, at least four cars were set on fire, as reported by the official.

At the same time, the Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, has made an appeal to everyone to keep the peace in the state.

Translated in English “Today’s incident is unfortunate, I appeal to all the people to maintain peace in the state. The guilty will not be spared at any cost, strictest action will be taken against them”

The State Home Minister, Anil Vij, mentioned that the government has dispatched extra troops from nearby districts. He emphasized that their primary focus is to restore peace and order.

The authorities are urging everyone to remain calm during this time. Additionally, they are making efforts to deploy forces by helicopter, as he informed PTI.

Furthermore, he stated that he personally contacted the Director General of Police, the Additional Chief Secretary, and other senior officials to discuss the incident.
