Nupur Sharma`s controversial remarks: Curfew continues in J&K`s Doda, Kishtwar towns; 2 booked in UP for sharing anti-Prophet posts

Jammu and Kashmir`s Doda and Kishtwar towns will continue to have curfew restrictions for the fifth consecutive day on Monday, in view of the recent communal tensions after the controversial remarks made by former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma. The police have arrested one person for making an inflammatory speech. Authorities have decided to continue curfew restrictions under Section 144 of the CrPc in the two towns to maintain law and order as the groups of two communities have been accusing each other of stoking communal tensions after some miscreants posted purported announcements from a local mosque, said an IANS report.
