Balasore: The internet services, which were banned following a group clash will be restored in Odisha’s Balasore town and adjoining areas from Monday.

According to a notification of district collector, the curfew clamped in the town will be relaxed in the areas under Sahadevkhunta police station from 5 am to 9 pm and those under Town police station from 5 am to 2 pm.

While the broadband and land line services have been restored, the internet services will be resumed from Monday morning. Similarly, all schools, colleges and Anganwadi centres will reopen from tomorrow, the notification said.

While a cyber team of the administration has kept a sharp eye on social media to prevent spread of rumour, total 89 persons have been arrested and 29 cases filed in connection with the clash so far.

Even as internet services will be restored, district collector Asish Thakre and SP Sagarika Nath have warned of stringent action against those spreading rumour to provoke tension in the town.

It may be noted that the day after clashes between two communities left 10 people wounded on Bakrid, the authorities shut down internet services in Balasore town and upgraded prohibitory orders to a full curfew to prevent further flare-ups.
