The curfew in the Banbhoolpura area of Haldwani has been further relaxed, with the Nainital district administration saying on Sunday that the restrictions will now be in place between 10 pm to 5 am only.

Violence broke out on February 8 over the demolition of an illegally built madrassa in the Banbhoolpura area of Haldwani, with locals hurling stones and petrol bombs at municipal workers and police, forcing many police personnel to seek refuge at a police station, which
