DA to enforce 144 CrPC in capital

ITANAGAR, Apr 6: The capital complex district administration will enforce Section 144 CrPC from 7 to 14 April as “the protocol of total lockdown has been considerably violated on the ground.”

Vegetable vendors will continue to sell in the sectors only. They will not be allowed to sell in the main market areas.
During the restriction period, no unauthorized vehicles, including two-wheelers, will be allowed to move on the roads. Only those in essential services and those who are otherwise permitted are exempted.
Assembly of more than three persons is restricted, except for medical purposes, such as lifting of patients, etc. The residents have been instructed to remain indoors during the period.
