Article by Darshana Jamindar

Today, in Uttar Pradesh, with the improvement in situation in violence-hit Saharanpur, the district authorities have relaxed curfew four hours in the new city area to allow people to get their day to day items like grocery, vegetables and milk from market which were directed to remain open.

During this clash, 38 people were arrested as a political blame game erupted with BJP accusing Samajwadi Party  doing vote-bank politics and Congress blasting the UP government for faults. Curfew and shoot-at-sight orders had remained in force  in the wake of clashes between two communities over a land dispute with some indulging in arson. Three persons lost their lives in the violence on Saturday . Some 33 people were injured. 22 shops were gutted or damaged and 15 four-wheelers torched in the incidents.
