Normalcy returns to Kishtwar

GK NEWS NETWORK

Kishtwar, Oct 31: Normalcy returned to this mountainous township after two days of unrest and protest demonstrations sparked off due to blasphemous content uploaded on Facebook allegedly by some local youth.
Reports pouring in from various areas revealed that the situation remained normal on Wednesday with no reports of any protest or untoward incident.
The district headquarters also witnessed calm with people returning to their routine work as the police and civil administration last evening requested people from all communities to maintain peace and allow law to take its own course.
“The situation was normal in Chatroo tehsil as well as there was no protest today,” a police officer said.
Police is, however, on alert as it expects protests in some parts of the district on Friday, especially on the demand being raised by a particular community to disband Village Defence Committees (VDCs), which according to them have lost relevance in the changed situation.
Situation turned volatile in the district on Monday after some sacrilegious content was uploaded on the social networking website Facebook. Police immediately arrested three youth for the crime, including two Government teachers, who were also terminated from service.
