Lucknow: July 28, 2014, DHNS:
Curfew continued in the riot-torn Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, as tension persisted following Saturday’s communal violence in which three persons were killed.
No untoward incident was reported on Sunday even as 50 rioters were arrested in connection with the violence, according to the police sources here.
Security personnel staged a flag march in the affected areas on Sunday to instil confidence among the people while an extensive patrolling was being undertaken in the town to prevent any further flare up, officials said.
The administration has been keeping a watch on the town through a drone. “The lanes in the town are so narrow that patrolling is very difficult. Drones will come handy in keeping a watch on such places,” said a senior official in Saharanpur.
