The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Saharanpur, Rajesh Kumar Pandey told ANI ​on Monday that nine FIRs have been filed and 38 people have been arrested post the Saharanpur clashes which led to three deaths.

The SSP also asserted that the situation was slowly returning to normalcy and the police was trying its best to maintain peace.

When asked about rumours that are going around, Pandey said, "You must have seen that our officers are very active in trying to keep the rumour-mongering at bay. Whenever we get a call, we leave for that place and try to talk to the people. We are also identifying those who are trying to spreading rumours and we will not compromise on law and order."

On Saturday morning, violent clashes had erupted in Saharanpur amongst two groups who reportedly clashed over a patch of disputed land close to the city's railway station.

District Magistrate of Saharanpur, Sandhya Tiwari, had on Sunday indicated that the situation in the area was returning towards normalcy and claimed that no new instance of violence had occurred since it all started on Saturday.

Sikh protesters however, had taken to the streets in Delhi, terming the clashes in Saharanpur as a conspiracy against the minorities.
