The Indefinite curfew which was clamped in Madannapet and Saidabad Police Station limits on April 8 following communal riots, has been relaxed for 14 hours from 0600 hrs this morning to enable the people to purchase essentials and attend to daily work.
Since these areas were incident-free during the last couple of days following the relaxation, day curfew was being lifted from 0600 hrs and being reimposed at 2000 hrs in the night. If the situation continues to be peaceful, the curfew will be lifted completely, according to police. However, section 144 clamped in 31 police station limits will continue till April 21. 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.
