Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Arun Kumar said arrests were on and so far over 10,000 preventive arrests had been made till Wednesday.
As many as 2,000 licensed arms have been seized by the district administration and their licences cancelled.
"Things are looking up now and life is getting back to normal and no fresh case of violence has been reported," Kumar said.
Police officials are carrying out door-to-door checking to identify "any remnants of mobs" and have since confiscated a large amount of ammunition, including 41 cartridges of AK-47.
Muzaffarnagar district witnessed communal violence last weekend that left 38 people dead and compelled the authorities to call in the army.
