Prohibitory orders in Noida until June 19 in view of religious festivals, protests | Delhi News

In view of religious festivals and protests proposed by various organisations, the Gautam Buddha Nagar police on Sunday announced prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) in Noida and Greater Noida until Wedneday, June 19.

“Due to Ganga Dussehra on June 16, Bakrid on June 17, and the three days of Kurbaani observed by the Muslim community, along with protests by various organisations, there is a possibility of disturbing the peace by anti-social elements. Peace may also be disturbed due to protests by various party workers, farmer organisations, and other protesters,” said Hirdesh Katheriya, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (law and order).

“Considering the seriousness and urgency of the situation and due to time constraints, it is impossible to provide an opportunity to hear to any other party. Therefore, this order is being passed ex parte (done with respect to or in the interests of one side only or of an interested outside party),” added the officer.

As per the order, there will be a complete ban on drone cameras within a 1 km radius of government offices. Additionally, there will be a limited ban on playing loudspeakers from 10 pm to 6 am in religious places. Moreover, there will be a prohibition of rallies, religious activities, worshipping, namaaz, and other events in public places.

Officials stated that no procession or rally of five or more people can occur, nor can five or more people gather at a public spot without police permission.

The order said that permission must be obtained from the police commissioner, additional commissioner, or deputy commissioner in unavoidable circumstances. It added that no religious flags, banners, or posters should be placed on religious places or walls.

“No person shall let animals like pigs, dogs, etc. roam on the routes of religious places and near religious places during religious gatherings, which may hurt the sentiments of any individual or community,” it said.

Officials said violators would be punished under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servants) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The order further said the Noise Pollution (Control and Regulation) Rules, 2000, regarding the sound intensity of loudspeakers during festivals must be followed.

As per regulations, the maximum sound intensity levels are set at 40 to 75 decibels for religious places, 65/55 decibels in commercial areas, 55/44 decibels in residential areas, 50/40 decibels in quiet areas, and 75/70 decibels in industrial areas during both day and night time.
