Schools and government offices in Mewat’s Punhana town will reopen from Wednesday, four days after the district administration had imposed curfew to prevent any communal clashes.

The administration had imposed curfew on April 11, following a violent clash between the supporters of two rival political parties on polling day and murder of a youth on the subsequent day, triggering tension between the two communities.

According to officials, the curfew will be relaxed during day time so that schools and government offices could function.

Mewat DC RC Varma said that the situation was fast returning to normal. “I urge the people of Punhana to maintain peace.”
