Responding to the situation, the Circle Officer of Dholpur Rural, Babulal Meena, ensured that additional police forces were swiftly deployed to the village as a precautionary measure. As of now, the authorities report that the situation is under control, and efforts are ongoing to maintain peace and order.

The violence, which transpired just days after the Assembly elections, has raised concerns about the potential volatility in the post-electoral landscape. The clash occurred in the aftermath of elections that witnessed a 70% voter turnout, showcasing the significant political participation in the state. The electoral contest primarily featured a bipolar competition between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as they vied to secure the mandate for the new state government.

Detailing the impact of the clash, the Circle Officer mentioned that seven individuals sustained injuries due to stone pelting, while two others faced more severe consequences from the gunfire exchange. The individuals with critical injuries have been admitted to Dholpur district hospital, whereas those with less severe injuries are undergoing treatment at a hospital in Badi town.

The incident in Dholpur is not an isolated occurrence, as similar incidents of unrest were reported in different regions during the elections. Notably, Sikar, Dholpur, and Deeg districts experienced episodes of stone pelting and clashes. In Sikar, six to seven individuals were detained, and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) were deployed to restore order after confrontations between two groups resulted in stone pelting.
