Prohibitory orders in Hyderabad city extended for a week
Hyderabad: Even as the police is yet to decide whether to grant permission on proposed protests by Telangana activists and Samaikhyandhra supporters here on September 7, it announced an extension of prohibitory orders on Tuesday in the city, for a week from tomorrow.
Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma, who issued prohibitory orders said in a press release here today that public meetings, processions and people gathering on roads or public places have been prohibited to maintain public order, peace and tranquility in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
Prohibitory orders will be with effect from 6 am on September 4 until 6 am on September 10.
The Osmania University Telangana Students` Joint Action Committee (OU-TSJAC) has given a call for a second `million man march` to oppose the public meeting called by Seemandhra protesters at the L B Stadium on September 7.
The OU-TSJAC`s march will begin in front of the L B Stadium and pass through the Nizam`s College, Basheerbagh to Tank Bund on the same day.
Earlier, the AP Non-Gazetted Officers` Association, Samaikhyandhra groups and the OU-TSJAC had sought permission from the Central Zone Police for their respective protests, but due to Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations on September 9, the police are unlikely to grant permission to any of these groups.
As per prohibitory orders, carrying swords, spears, knives, sticks with or without flags, bludgeons, guns, explosives and other offensive weapons have been banned, besides collection and carrying of stones or other means of casting missiles.
Police has also prohibited the use of mikes and public
address systems in and around secretariat premises, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Building, Nizam`s College and its surroundings, the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly premises, as well as its surrounding roads, among other places.
Any person violating prohibitory orders shall be liable for prosecution under provisions of the Hyderabad City Police Act, the release said.
