Prohibitory orders relaxed for 13 hours in Delhi’s Trilokpuri

Delhi Police on Saturday relaxed prohibitory orders in violence-hit Trilokpuri area for 13 hours. 

“The prohibitory orders relaxation is from 6 am to 7 pm (Saturday),” Additional Commissioner of Police Pushpendra Kumar told IANS.

Police on Friday had relaxed the prohibitory orders for 13 hours. It also gave permission to residents of Block 20 to organise a ‘jagran’ – a night-long religious gathering – in their neighbourhood.

Police said the ‘jagran’ was held “peacefully”.

Two groups of Hindus and Muslims clashed during Diwali on Oct 23 after which the authorities imposed prohibitory orders banning gatherings and movement of people.

Pushpendra Kumar said the police have decided to organise a community meeting between the two groups on Saturday in the wake of Muharram procession on Nov 4.

Police said they will continue to use a drone camera to monitor the rooftops for bricks and glass bottles in the troubled area.

So far, 68 people have been arrested in connection with the clashes.

Trilokpuri, divided into 36 blocks, is being manned by over 1,000 security personnel from Delhi Police, Rapid Action Force and Central Reserve Police Force along with over 30 police vans, water cannons and riot control vehicles.
