Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Monday said that a police station will be built in Haldwani's Banbhulpura where an illegal madrasa was razed last week.

In a post on X, Dhami said, "Now, a police station will be constructed at the location where illegal encroachment was cleared in Banbhulpura, Haldwani. This sends a clear message from our government to the troublemakers and instigators that nobody who disrupts peace will be exempted. Uttarakhand has no tolerance for such troublemakers."

On February 8, five people were killed in the violence that broke out over the demolition of an illegally built madrasa.

More than 100 police officers were injured as locals hurled stones and petrol bombs at municipal workers and the police, forcing many police personnel to seek refuge at a police station which the mob later set on fire.
