Use of hot air balloons (dola) has been banned in the city. Before passing the order on Friday, police commissioner Paramraj Singh Umranangal and the district administration had invited representations from the public.
Umranangal said the hot air balloon didn’t destroy in sky and could fall anywhere, posing risk to life and property.
No storage, sale of firecrackers in residential areas
The police commissioner has also banned the storage and sale of fireworks in residential area. Umranangal said that he came to know that some of people had stored firecrackers illegally in godowns in residential areas and some traders were selling these in crowded markets.
Both the orders were passed under Section 144 of the CrPC. The police commissioner said stern action would be taken against the violators.
