"District Magistrate PC Meena has Tuesday banned Hookah bars in the district. He has invoked Section 144 of Cr PC 1973 for this purpose," he said.

The orders issued in Gurgaon said that Hookah bars were serving tobacco molasses containing nicotine which is injurious to health of the people, especially the college students and youth.

"The ban comes into effect with immediate effect," Meena said.

"Those found violating these orders will be dealt with seriously and strict legal action will be taken against them," he warned.

Gurgaon is adjacent to national capital New Delhi.
