The prohibitory orders will be implemented in five police sub-divisions – Dwarka and Najafgarh in south west Delhi, Alipur and Bawana in outer Delhi and Mukherjee Nagar in north west Delhi, a senior police said.
These five sub-divisions cover over 15 police stations. In the first phase of the Jat agitation, violence was witnessed in and around Mukherjee Nagar and Najafgarh areas, said sources.
In February, agitating members of Jat community had held demonstrations at several places in the city, leading to severe disruption of traffic on key arterial roads.
They had also blocked major state border entry points, including Sindhu border, Nangloi-Bahadurgarh Road, Karnal road, Tikari, Jharoda and Madhuban Chowk in southwest and outer Delhi, creating major traffic snarls that also affected many areas in the city.
