In response to racial unrest following the death of a tailor in Udaipur, the Rajasthan government on Tuesday issued prohibitory orders and shut down mobile internet connection throughout the state.

Chief Secretary Usha Sharma instructed officials to implement section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), which prohibits gatherings of more than four individuals, in all districts of the state for one month, and to stop mobile internet connection throughout the state for 24 hours.

Officials from the police and administration have also had their leaves cancelled. Sharma presided over a high-level conference of senior officers to examine the situation, which included Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Abhay Kumar, Director General of Police M L Lather, and others.

“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.

Following the murder of a man in the Udaipur district, security measures have been implemented. The murderers confessed to the crime in three online recordings before being quickly apprehended.

The attackers also made an indirect reference to Nupur Sharma, a BJP leader who was expelled from the organisation for making a statement about the Prophet Mohammad.

According to the announcement, Sharma sent orders to all divisional commissioners to stop the distribution of the incident’s footage and to take legal action against anyone discovered to be doing so.

She suggested that religious authorities be urged to support efforts to promote communal harmony and peace.

An earlier curfew was put in place in seven Udaipur police station neighbourhoods starting Tuesday night at 8 pm until further instructions.

In the meantime, five companies of the Rajasthan Armed Constabulary (RAC), 30 members of the Rajasthan Police Service, two more director generals of police, a deputy inspector general of police, and a superintendent of police have been dispatched to Udaipur. The local police recently detained Kanhaiya Lal due to certain comments he made on social media.
