Kendrapara: IG Soumendra Priyadarshi reached Kendrapara to take stock of the situation on Thursday.
While speaking to the media, he said that the situation is absolutely normal in the area. There was a little tension over there after an objectionable material was posted on Facebook. However, there was total peace and normalcy back in the town yesterday.
It may be note that some miscreants had posted objectionable materials on Facebook regarding a particular religion. Apprehending communal violence, the government had banned internet services in Kendrapara for 48 hours from 3 pm on Wednesday afternoon to stop making the posting go viral.
Three platoons of police force was also deployed and constant patrolling was being done to avert any untoward incident.
It might be reminded that a similar situation had arisen in Bhadrak earlier this month which led to communal violence.
