State Assembly road closed for public

Monday, 30 November 2020 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

After a series of three self-immolation attempts were made in a week in front of the State Legislative Assembly, the Commissionerate police on Sunday closed the road completely for public.

The stretch of road between Jayadev Bhawan and the Rabindra Mandap in front of the Assembly was sealed restricting movement of vehicles. Neither people nor vehicles would be allowed to move on the road when the Assembly would be in the session.

As per the decision, the commuters moving via Jayadev Vihar would be stopped at the office of Commissionerate police near 120 Battalion. Similarly, people commuting to AG Square from Acharya Vihar would be restricted at the Keshari Cinema Hall. The commuters coming on the route from AG Square would be stopped at the Jayadev Bhawan.

Only the emergency services would be allowed to move on the route on showing the necessary documents, including the ID proof at the police check-post.

Notably, three suicide attempt incidents took place in front of the Assembly last week during its Winter Session, for which the Commissionerate police considered to close the route completely to avoid any further untoward mishap.

The security personnel have kept vigil on movements of people, especially the pedestrians, on the roads near the Assembly to foil self-immolation attempts repeatedly being made in front of Assembly building.
