After last night’s rioting in Chavat Galli, Khadak Galli, Topi Galli and adjoining areas the areas are still tensed and closed by police as a precautionary measure.khade-bazar

There was an attempt by some miscreants top pelt stones in Khade bazar as well but was foiled by the alert citizens and police acted swiftly.

The prohibitory orders issued for the 5 streets has now been extended to the Khade Bazar Police limits. The situation is under control but rumors doing rounds are creating more nuisance and police has asked the citizens to be on vigil and do not forward messages or images which may not be true.

Most of the shops from Khade Bazar towards central bus stand remained half open and a few closed sighting the tension.

In the stone pelting and rioting 6 motorbikes were set on fire and more than 20 vehicles were damaged on Wednesday night in Khadak Galli. The exact cause is however not known but police sources believe that the incident is related to the beating up of youth of a particular community in Kelkar bagh earlier in the day.
