Bhopal, Jan 18 (IANS) Curfew has been lifted in three police station areas in Madhya Pradesh’s capital Bhopal on Monday, which was imposed following a court’s decision anticipating disturbance to the communal harmony in the area.

However, Article 144 of the CrPC will be in place and procession will not be allowed.

A structure was about to be made in Kabadkhana area of the capital after the court’s ruling in the favour of one party and the another faction was opposing the decision.
