Police Commissioner Paramjit Singh Gill on Sunday invoked Section 144 of the CrPC in the city following a violent clash between supporters of SAD candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali and Independent candidate Simarjit Singh Bains in Sarabha Nagar on Saturday.
The orders issued by the Police Commissioner said, “As the Lok Sabha elections are approaching and the political parties are starting their campaigning, to maintain proper law and order, Section 144 is imposed in the city for next two months.”
“More than five persons cannot gather at one place and no person shall be allowed to move with weapons under the area of Police Commissionerate,” the orders added.
Seeing series of criminal activities in Sarabha Nagar, one of the most posh areas of the city, the police took out a flag march in the area on Sunday evening. A few days back, two groups of Youth Akali Dal had opened fire in Sarabha Nagar, firing 170 rounds and leaving three injured.
