In the aftermath of the recent unrest in Haldwani, Uttarakhand, authorities are intensifying their efforts to locate and apprehend those responsible for the violence. The turmoil erupted following the demolition of an illegal madrassa in the Banbhoolpura area, triggering clashes between locals and law enforcement personnel on February 8.

Uttarakhand Police, on Friday, released photographs of nine individuals identified as the primary instigators of the chaos. Among them are Abdul Malik and his son, who are believed to have played significant roles in orchestrating the violence. Malik, in particular, had constructed the madrassa and vehemently opposed its demolition. His defiance escalated into clashes that resulted in severe disruptions and loss of life.

The state government, through various channels, disseminated images of the "wanted" rioters, urging citizens to come forward with any information that could aid in their apprehension. Additionally, a lookout notice has been issued for Abdul Malik and his son, heightening the urgency of their capture.

Furthermore, law enforcement agencies have apprehended five additional suspects, bringing the total number of arrests to 42 individuals allegedly involved in the violent incidents. The police are conducting extensive searches across the town and surrounding areas in pursuit of those evading arrest.

To assist in the identification and location of the suspects, posters bearing the images of the wanted individuals, prominently featuring Abdul Malik and his son, have been strategically placed throughout Haldwani. This concerted effort aims to leverage community involvement in facilitating the apprehension of the perpetrators and restoring peace to the region.

Despite the ongoing manhunt, the situation remains tense in Banbhoolpura, prompting authorities to implement curfew restrictions. While some relaxation in curfew hours has been granted, the suspension of internet services continues for the eighth consecutive day, further complicating communication and access to information in the area.

As the search for the masterminds and perpetrators of the Haldwani violence intensifies, the community braces for further developments while grappling with the aftermath of the unrest. Authorities remain committed to restoring calm and ensuring that those responsible for instigating violence are brought to justice.
