Curfew imposed in Amravati against violence over Tripura protests

An official order stated that a curfew is enforced in Maharashtra’s city on Saturday due to back-to-back incidences of stone-pelting on Friday and Saturday.

The curfew has been imposed in the city limits, according to an order issued by the Amravati police commissioner on Saturday, and will remain in effect until additional orders are made.

To avoid any untoward situations, officiating police commissioner Sandip Patil issued this order under sections 144(1), (2), and (3) of the CrPc.

In the impacted locations, the internet has also been disabled.

In the meanwhile, people are not permitted to leave their homes except in medical circumstances. It further said that gatherings of more than five persons are prohibited.

During a bandh purportedly organized by the BJP on Saturday morning, a mob flung stones and damaged stores in numerous locations around Amravati city, leading police to use force against the demonstrators, according to an official.

The bandh (shutdown) was declared in response to stone-pelting incidents in Amravati on Friday during Muslim organizations’ marches in protest of communal violence in Tripura.

Officials stated that around 8,000 people gathered outside the Amravati district collector’s office on Friday to present a statement seeking an end to crimes against the minority population.
