Ludhiana, December 26, 2018: Commissioner of Police, Ludhiana Dr Sukhchain Singh Gill has banned the sale and breeding of Magur fish (also spelled as mangoor) in all areas falling under the jurisdiction of Police Commissionerate Ludhiana.
As per the ban orders issued under 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, he said that some anti-social people smuggle this fish from other countries, which is harmful to our health, for meagre financial gains. This fish preys on its own breed and also harms village ponds and animals. For Indian fishes, this fish is very harmful and if it mixes with our natural waters, it can be very harmful to other insects and fishes living in water. That is why the sale and breeding of Magur fish has been banned.
As per another order, he has also banned operations of Hookah Bars in all areas under the jurisdiction of Police Commissionerate Ludhiana. He stated that it has come to his notice that some Hookah Bars are operating illegally in the city and they are causing serious harm to our residents as the Hookah contains tobacco, harmful chemicals etc. Keeping in mind the health of city residents, the Commissioner of Police has banned all Hookah bars in the city.
In separate order, he has imposed a ban on the loudspeakers from 10 pm to 6 am in all the areas falling under the jurisdiction of Police Commissionerate Ludhiana. The Commissioner of Police, while exercising his powers under section 144 of the CRPC, 1973 has said that no person would be allowed to play loudspeakers on high volume from 10 pm to 6 am. He said that when someone plays loudspeakers on high volume, it affects common man, animals, birds, sick people etc. He said that in case there is any programme which is to be organised during this time period, then the organisers require a permission from the concerned authorities.
In another order, he has banned the assembly of five or more persons, carrying of arms & ammunition and flammable materials. All these orders would remain in force for the next two months time.
