Prohibitory orders imposed in Muzaffarnagar till January 30

The Muzaffarnagar administration imposed prohibitory orders in the district till January 30 under section 144 of the CrPC to maintain law and order, officials said on December 5.

Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) prohibits the gathering of four or more people in a specified area.

Additional District Magistrate Narender Bahadur Singh said the step has been taken to maintain law and order in the district in view of important upcoming events such as Christmas Day, Republic Day, the birth anniversaries of Guru Gobind Singh (December 22) and former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh (December 23).

The ADM said the administration also wants to ensure there is no law and order situation due to dharna and demonstrations that different political and social organisations may organise in the district.
