Curfew lifted completely

The indefinite curfew clamped in Madannapet and Saidabad Police Station Limits following communal clashed on April eight, was lifted completely while prohibitory orders under Section 144 in old city areas were extended till April 20. According to City in-charge Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma, Section 144 prohibiting assembly of five or ore persons was extended to police limits in South Zone, East Zone and West Zone areas. Since riot-hit areas remained incident-free during the last couple of days even after curfew was relaxed, curfew was lifted completely from yesterday, he said. However, Sec 144, clamped in 31 police station limits, will continue till April 20 as a precautionary measure. The curfew was imposed in Madannapet and Saidabad Police Station limits following a communal clash after an animal carcass was found in a place of worship at Saidabad.
