Press Trust of India Jaipur
Curfew was relaxed today for 12 hours in violence-hit Malpura town of Rajasthan's Tonk district as no untoward incident was reported, police said.
It will, however, remain in force during night, they said.
Curfew was relaxed today from 7 am to 7 pm, SHO of Malpura police station, Navneet Bihari Vyas, said.
The law and order situation is gradually getting normal but night curfew will continue as a precautionary measure, he added.
Vyas said 41 people have been arrested so far.
Curfew was imposed in Malpura after members of a minority community pelted stones at kanwariyas, injuring 15 of them, on Thursday.
The attack was followed by arson in which a vehicle was torched, forcing the authorities to impose Section 144 of the CrPC which prohibits assembly of more than four people in an area.
