Under the Section 144, a gathering of more than five people will be banned too and vehicles are not allowed to have tinted windows. Any violation of rule can lead to action under the imposed section, stated the notification of the district administration. As per notification, every kind of display of weapons, aerial firing and carrying guns will be banned.
