The Hush Post: Ludhiana Police Commissioner RN Dhoke on Tuesday issued various prohibitory orders to maintain the law and order in the city. The police commissioner ordered that no person would cover face while driving or walking in the limit of the city police. Those having any kind of allergy or illness will be exempted. He has also issued orders for the shopkeepers to keep a record of buyers of army print clothes and uniforms. Expressing apprehensions that shopkeepers do not keep a record of the sale of army print clothes and uniforms, he has ordered the shopkeepers to ask for a photograph, identification proof and mobile numbers of the buyers. The shopkeepers will have to submit the record of sale to police stations concerned.
He said that these orders will last over the next two months. The city police chief has also banned unauthorised use of sticker or logo related to ‘police’, ‘Army’, ‘VIP’, ‘On Government Duty’ and any department’s name on private vehicles.
Further, the Police Commissioner has also prohibited the shopkeepers to encroach the area outside their shops and on roads and footpaths to sell eatables and other items. He exercised the powers vested under Section 144, Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
