District Magistrate Sanjay Dubey said that any decision with regard to the restriction would be taken by the administration on Tuesday after reviewing the situation. He said the restrictions have been relaxed from 5 am on Monday till 6 am on Tuesday.
According to official sources, the restriction is likely to be lifted on Tuesday as the situation in the city was fast returning to normal.
Curfew was clamped in areas falling under Lordganj, Omti, Kotwali, Belbag, Gohalpur and Hanumantal late on Thursday night following tension after
the removal and tearing of religious posters in the Kamani Gate area. The restriction was relaxed for 18 hours on Sunday, during which the people made purchase of essential commodities.
The district administration is adopting a cautious approach as a Hindu Sammelan is scheduled in the city on Tuesday coinciding with the muharram and the Jain community’s Gajarath samaroh, official sources said.
The city was gripped by tension after the posters of the Jain community were found torn in the city late on January 25. The community leaders had alleged involvement of the minority community in the act.
