Violent Protests Erupt In Haldwani Over Encroachments, Curfew Imposed

In a shocking turn of events, the city of Haldwani in Uttarakhand witnessed violent protests and clashes over encroachments. The situation escalated to a point where the entire city was turned into a fortress with the imposition of a curfew and orders to shoot miscreants on sight. These events unfolded after the demolition of a mosque and a madrasa in the Banbhoolpura area, which led to widespread unrest.

The Municipal Corporation team, accompanied by police forces, initiated the demolition process in the residential area of Indira Nagar. However, the demolition soon turned into a battleground as locals vehemently opposed the action. The situation spiraled out of control, with protesters vandalizing government properties and pelting stones at the authorities.

Following the commotion, the District Magistrate (DM) wasted no time in issuing the order to use firearms against the troublemakers. As a result, the entire city of Haldwani was transformed into a military camp with a heavy police presence. Reports have emerged of several individuals sustaining injuries during the clashes.

The gravity of the situation prompted Chief Minister Dhami to convene a high-level meeting to assess the law and order situation. He conferred with the Chief Secretary and the Police Commissioner to evaluate the ongoing events and formulate a strategy to restore peace in the city. The Chief Minister also appealed to the public to maintain calm and cooperate with the authorities.

It is worth noting that Haldwani, a prominent city in Uttarakhand, has been grappling with the issue of encroachments for a while now. The encroachment drive, aimed at reclaiming public land, has triggered a wave of protests and tensions in various parts of the city. The situation in Haldwani remains tense, with the police maintaining a strict vigil and ensuring the safety of the civilians.
