NEW DELHI: De­scrib­ing the re­cent in­ci­dents of com­mu­nal vi­o­lence in Muzaf­far­na­gar as “most wor­ri­some”, PM Man­mo­han Singh told po­lice chiefs on Satur­day to tackle com­mu­nal in­ci­dents with ut­most firm­ness and fair­ness in the fu­ture.

Singh also re­it­er­ated the need for se­cu­rity agen­cies prob­ing ter­ror groups to re­main “scrupu­lously bi­par­ti­san” so that peo­ple don’t lose faith in their pro­fes­sion­al­ism “and the sec­u­lar na­ture of our polity”.

Singh said that there was the like­li­hood of at­tempts by ter­ror groups to dis­rupt the forth­com­ing Lok Sabha and As­sem­bly elec­tions.
