In view of the proposed Jat agitation from June 5, the Haryana police department has cancelled leave of all personnel except in emergency cases till further orders.

A written communication to this effect has been sent on Thursday to all concerned including commissioners of police, by the inspector general of police (administration), AS Chawla. Additional director general of police Mohammad Akil said strict vigil will be kept on anti-social elements and those found spreading rumours or vitiating peaceful atmosphere would be dealt with sternly.

“The police and district administration would maintain law and order and safety of the people would be ensured,” Akil told reporters in Bhiwani.

“The police would not tolerate blocking of road and rail traffic. Police officers are holding meetings with responsible citizens to maintain peace in rural and urban areas,” he said.

At least 30 people were killed and damage to property worth hundreds of crores of rupees was caused during the Jat quota agitation in Haryana in February this year.
