This incident comes in the aftermath of communal clashes that shook Nuh and other parts of the state, leaving six people dead, including two home guards and a cleric. The clashes originally stemmed from an attempt to halt a Vishva Hindu Parishad procession, which eventually escalated and spread to Gurugram, causing significant unrest over the past few days.
