Next day after protests against alleged rape of a five-year-old girl, Nashik in Maharashtra returned to normalcy on Monday.
"The situation is tense but under control. We have deployed adequate police personnel in the affected villages. The highway and city roads are normal," Superintendent of Police (Rural) Ankush Shinde said.
Several persons involved in Sunday's violence and damage to public properties had been arrested, he added.
DCP Laxmikant Patil said any attempt by mischief mongers to violate the law "would be dealt with a heavy hand".
Police Commissioner R.K. Singhal said action had been taken against the rape accused and urged people not to believe rumours mongers.
On Sunday, thousands of people blocked the Mumbai-Agra highway, and targeted public and private vehicles to protest against the drastic act.
