Nuh demolition drive: The hotel where stones were thrown during a religious procession has been demolished.


Nuh demolition drive: So far, 50 to 60 structures in various places have been demolished. Many people have fled, fearing arrest.
A major demolition effort against “illegal” structures in Haryana’s Nuh has become the newest flashpoint between the state’s two populations. The Nuh district government has dispatched bulldozers to demolish the Sahara Hotel on the fourth day of the demolition campaign.
Officials believe the violence in Nuh began on Monday when some people threw stones from the roof of the Sahara Hotel at a religious procession. As a mob pelted the procession with stones, the 2,500 or so participants ran into a shrine for protection.
On Saturday, over a dozen businesses, including medical clinics, were destroyed. Migrant shanties in Tauru, around 20 km from violence-stricken Nuh, were burned earlier this week for infringing on government territory.
