The police directed private establishments to install CCTVs and also imposed several ban orders in Ludhiana to deal with antisocial elements on Wednesday.

Ludhiana police commissioner Paramraj Singh Umra Nangal said the anti-social elements sometimes snatch cash and other valuables from the people at the petrol pumps, and also at other crowded places like shopping malls, marriage palaces and money exchange offices.

In order to prevent anti-social activities, Umra Nangal, while exercising his executive magistrate powers under Section 144 of the CrPC, directed all petrol pumps, marriage palaces, shopping malls and money exchange offices to install CCTV’s within 30 days.

The city top cop also banned the sale, cutting and preparation of meat and poultry products on the occasion of Pargat Diwas or Valmiki Jayanti on October 27. He said these orders have been issued keeping in view the religious sanctity of this occasion.

He also ordered the shops selling army and paramilitary fatigues to maintain proper record of the buyers, which is required to be submitted with police station concerned every month. In case a trader fails to do so, he or she would have to face legal action.

Umra Nangal also banned the serving of eatables without using gloves at all outlets and carts selling fast food. In his orders, the police commissioner stated, it has come to his notice that some people don’t wear gloves while serving eatables, which leads to several diseases and health related problems. These orders would remain in force for two months from Wednesday.

Umra Nangal has also issued directions to the public not to cover their faces while driving vehicles or walking to ensure that criminals may not go scot free after committing the crime.
