Maharashtra: Curfew in Amravati as fresh violence erupts


PTI, Nov 13, 2021, 2:59 PM IST

Amravati: A curfew was imposed in Maharashtra’s Amravati city on Saturday against the backdrop of back-to-back incidents of stone-pelting on Friday and Saturday, an official order said.

As per the order issued on Saturday by the Amravati police commissionerate, the curfew has come into effect in the limits of the city and will remain in force till further order is issued.

This order was issued by officiating police commissioner Sandip Patil under sections 144(1), (2), (3) of the CrPc to avoid any untoward incidents.

Except for medical emergencies, people are not allowed to come out of their houses. Similarly, a gathering of more than five people is not allowed, it said.

On Saturday morning, a mob hurled stones and damaged shops at various places in Amravati city during a bandh allegedly organized by BJP prompting the police to lathi-charge the protesters, an official said.

The bandh (shutdown) was called against Friday’s stone-pelting incidents in Amravati during rallies held by Muslim organizations in protest against the Tripura communal violence.

On Friday, over eight thousand people had gathered outside the Amravati district collector’s office to submit a memorandum demanding that atrocities against the minority community be stopped, officials had said.

When people were leaving after submitting the memorandum, stone-pelting took place at three places between Chitra Chowk and Cotton Market under the limits of the Kotwali police station.

Kotwali Police has so far registered 11 FIRs under various charges including rioting. Ten persons were arrested.
