In an effort to maintain peace and tranquility in the city, the Guwahati police have issued prohibitory orders under section 144 CrPC. Following this, the police has banned gatherings of more than five people within the city limits.
The directive, issued by the Guwahati Police Commissioner's office, aims to address the challenges posed by overcrowding and potential unrest.
Under the new order, any sit-in protests or rally gatherings are prohibited, with police authorities taking measures to block such activities. The directive applies to all three police districts of the city, signaling a comprehensive approach to maintaining public safety and tranquility.
