The Supreme Court has issued notices to Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi in the wake of communal clashes in Nuh, Gurugram and neighbouring areas. The apex court directed the Centre to ensure no hate speech or violence takes place in Delhi-NCR. A bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and S V Bhatti also ordered that additional police or paramilitary forces be deployed and CCTV cameras be installed in sensitive areas.

Earlier in the day a plea before the Supreme Court had noted that 23 protest marches had been announced by right-wing groups Vishva Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal in various parts of the National Capital Region since Monday's clashes. The lawyer - appearing for journalist Shaheen Abdullah - had sought an urgent hearing in the matter. CJI DY Chandrachud had said the court would consider hearing the plea after seeing the papers.

Six people, including two home guards, have died in the communal violence which broke out in Nuh after a mob tried to stop a VHP procession on July 31. According to the state government, around 116 people have been arrested so far.

“There should be no hate speech, no violence if required, deploy additional forces, CCTV cameras to be installed and everything recorded to be preserved," the apex court said.

“We hope and trust that the state governments, including the police authorities, will ensure that there are no hate speeches against any community and there is no violence or damage to properties. Wherever required, adequate police force or paramilitary forces will be deployed," it added.

Members of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad meanwhile staged protests in several parts of the national capital against the clashes in Nuh district.
