SENSING A threat to peace in the City and to prevent misuse of stones and concrete, additional district magistrate (ADM) Manish Singh has issued prohibitory orders under Section 144 of IPC 1973, banning accumulation of concrete, bricks, stones for construction near public routes and roads of the City.

The orders state that if any concrete, bricks, stones are accumulated for any construction work, the concerned builder should keep the material at the site of construction and from the point of view of security this material should not come in possession of other persons. Its responsibility will lie with the concerned builder.

Through SP’s report and media it has been learnt that chakka jam, processions etc have become routine affairs in the City and during these agitations antisocial elements use stones and pieces of bricks lying on the road to damage vehicles and property.

Sometimes common man and police personnel are also injured due to this. Besides, during recent incidents it was seen that during disputes stones and bricks meant for construction lying on roadside were used for such attacks. The orders have been enforced to contain such incidents.

A release of the district magistrate’s office said that since this prohibitory order has to be made effective with immediate effect for the convenience of masses, it is approved one sided under Section 144 (2) of IPC 1973. Anybody violating the order would be booked under the provisions of IPC.

Singh issued the order today and it would become effective from tomorrow at 6 pm and remain effective till 6 am on March 28. Violation of the order will be a punishable offence under Section 188.
