Taking strict action against roadside vendors who do not wear gloves while serving food to customers, the police on Tuesday evening registered cases against six of them.
Deputy commissioner of police Naveen Singla had recently issued orders making it mandatory for roadside vendors to wear gloves.
The cases have been registered under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Punjab Agricultural University police.
Station house officer (SHO) Surinder Kumar said the vendors, operating at PAU and Saggu Chowk, were booked for serving food in violation of prohibitory orders.
The accused have been identified as Suresh Kumar, Lalit Shah, Tarun Chauhan, Joginder kumar, Manoj kumar and Dawarka.
"Some of them did not even cover the food items,"said the SHO.
