37 cases registered for violating court order on bursting crackers

Friday, 09 November 2018 | PNS | Chandigarh

37 people were arrested in Chandigarh as revellers in cities across Punjab and Haryana flouted the Supreme Court order which had limited the bursting of crackers to between 8 pm and 10 pm on Diwali.

In Ludhiana, one of the most polluted city in the country, 14 cases were registered for flouting the apex court's time frame on bursting crackers.  The cases were registered under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code for disobedience of an order promulgated by public authorities.

A police spokesman said that adequate personnel had been deployed to implement the court's order.

The deputy commissioner's order on bursting, selling, and storing firecrackers was followed and legal action was taken under relevant sections of the IPC and provisions of the Act against violators, said he.
