Three minors were detained and an FIR was registered on Wednesday, 11 May, in connection with the murder of a 22-year-old man, who was stabbed to death at the Kotawali police station area on Tuesday night in Rajasthan's Bhilwara, Bhilwara SP Adarsh told ANI.

Meanwhile, Bhilwara District Magistrate (DM) said that after holding rounds of talks with the family, the body had been sent for postmortem.

"After this, the last rites will be conducted. The situation was peaceful in Bhilwara throughout the day," he was quoted as saying by ANI.

"There is a provision for compensation of up to Rs 8 lakhs for the SC community under the government compensation scheme. So far, three people have been detained," he added.


Earlier, Internet was suspended in Bhilwara amid tensions in the region.

"Internet services in Bhilwara to remain suspended till 6 am on Thursday, 12 May," ANI quoted District Collector Ashish Modi as saying.

Bhilwara DM said a decision on the restoration of Internet services will be taken on the basis of the law & order situation in Bhilwara.

Details About the Incident

The Hindu man was allegedly killed by a Muslim man when he went to resolve a dispute involving his younger brother, NDTV reported. The Kotawali police station area was placed under heavy police deployment.

Meanwhile, some right-wing groups called for a bandh over the murder.

The Rajasthan Police is on alert as this comes after communal clashes had broken out in Karauli, Alwar, and Jodhpur in the past few weeks.

"The administration is talking to community leaders to keep dialogue open and foster an understanding so that this incident does not acquire communal overtones," the district collector added.

Incidents of Violence Over the Last Few Weeks

Bhilwara was tense last week as well, when in the Sanganer area of the district last Wednesday, two youth of a community were attacked by at least eight masked bike-borne assailants.

Earlier, clashes had also broken out in the Jodhpur’s Jalori Gate circle, from where Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot hails, following Eid prayers in the locality. The police had resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the mob.

A spokesperson for UN's Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had also commented on the Jodhpur violence ahead of Eid and said that he hoped the Indian government and security forces will ensure that everyone from different communities can celebrate festivals peacefully.
