North Zone Inspector General Y Nagi Reddy said that 20 cases were booked and 22 persons were arrested for their alleged involvement in the group clashes in Bhainsa so far. He toured the clashes-hit areas of the town and assessed the law and order situation on Wednesday.

Addressing pressmen, Nagi Reddy said that no untoward incidents reported in the town in the past three days. He stated that 20 cases were registered against those who indulged in the clashes and arson on Sunday night. He informed that 22 persons including two councilors were taken into custody for their role in the conflicts. As many as 28 suspects were already held.

The IPS officer appealed to the people not to believe rumours being spread on social media platforms and not to forward unconfirmed messages. He cautioned that administrators of WhatsApp groups would be held responsible if members indulge in such acts. He added that the Preventive Detention Act would be invoked against those who were already booked.

Collector Musharraf Ali Faruqui and In-charge Superintendent of Police Vishnu S Warrier were present.
