Man murdered in Udaipur: internet suspended, mass gathering banned in entire Rajasthan

Leaves of police and administration officials in Rajasthan have also been cancelled

Rajasthan government on Tuesday imposed prohibitory orders and suspended mobile internet service across the state in view of communal tension following the murder of a tailor in Udaipur.

Chief Secretary Usha Sharma directed officials to suspend mobile internet service across the state for 24 hours and impose section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) -- preventing the assembly of more than four people -- in all districts of the state for a month.

Leaves of police and administration officials have also been cancelled. Sharma chaired a high-level meeting with senior officers, including Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Abhay Kumar, Director General of Police M L Lather and others, to review the situation.

“The chief secretary has directed all divisional commissioners, inspector generals of police and district collectors to take special vigil across the state,” an official statement said.

The men who allegedly carried out the daylight murder posted three videos online admitting to the crime and were soon arrested.

Sharma directed all divisional commissioners to block the circulation of the videos of the incident and take action against those found sharing them, the release said.

She said an appeal should be made to religious leaders to cooperate in maintaining communal harmony and peace.

Kumar said the situation should be monitored with utmost vigilance and sensitivity in all the districts while Lather directed that police and administration officers should ensure special monitoring to maintain law and order.
