As normalcy returned to Jammu which saw protests for the last few days over the alleged desecration of two temples, authorities today restored mobile Internet services across the region.
“We have ordered the restoration of mobile Internet services across Jammu region. The services were suspended after the turmoil following the desecration of a temple in Roop Nagar area of Jammu on Tuesday,” Deputy Commissioner (DC) Jammu, Simrandeep Singh told PTI.
He said the situation across Jammu has been peaceful and people of all religions have shown maturity to calm down the passions.
Singh said two more persons were arrested yesterday in connection with the desecration of a Shiv temple in Nanak Nagar area of Jammu.
“The details of the calls made by the accused led to the identification and arrest of two more accused in the desecration of a temple in Nanak Nagar area,” he said.
“The persons who were eyewitnesses to the incident, had informed police that the accused was speaking to someone on phone where he said he had finished the job and the money should be paid to him,” the DC said.
Singh said the whole incident including the alleged “deal” is being probed.
“The situation has remained normal across the region. We are investigating both the cases and the culprits would be punished as per the law”, the DC said.
On Tuesday evening, a “mentally disturbed” person had desecrated the Aap Shamboo temple in the Roop Nagar area of the city and on Thursday evening, another temple in the Nanak Nagar area was desecrated by a dismissed constable of Indian Reserve Police (IRP).
The desecration of the temple in Roop Nagar area had led to law-and-order problem in the city with protesters resorting to stone pelting on police personnel and also torching several vehicles in the area.
