Jodhpur Incident: 97 people arrested, while the police are still on high alert

As per an official statement by police, so far 97 people have been arrested in connection with incidents related to Jodhpur violence. The Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order), Hawa Singh Ghumaria gave a statement telling that “Curfew is being strictly enforced in the district. Higher-level officers have been deployed here. Every small incident occurring in the district is being monitored. A total of 97 people have been arrested in connection with incidents that have occurred in Jodhpur.”

On the other hand, Satish Poonia, the state president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has appealed to the governor Kalraj Mishra to launch an investigation into the violent acts that have occurred in Jodhpur and also send necessary orders to the state government to guarantee that the state’s law and order are further maintained. In addition to that, he also requested the governor to take strict actions against the accused.  

“I sincerely urge that a fair inquiry into the incidents should be conducted and that you (Governor) take suo-moto cognizance of the situation and pass on the necessary instructions to the state administration so that peace may be restored in the state and the communal incident is not repeated.” Poonia writes a Hindi letter to the Governor seeking his support.

Following Eid prayers, clashes erupted at the Jalori gate circle in Jodhpur, the home area of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. In order to control the mob, police used a lathi charge. This followed the tense atmosphere that took place in the district on Monday after the stone-pelting incidents between two religious groups over hosting different flags at Balmukand Bissa at the Jalori Gate intersection circle. 

A political conflict also erupted between the Congress and the BJP, with the former accusing the latter of spreading hatred in election-bound states like Rajasthan, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Karnataka.
