The Uttar Pradesh Police has registered an FIR against 500 unidentified persons for damaging public property, indulging in arson and blocking the highway in connection with protests by scores of minority community members on National Highway-24.
Owing to the holy Kartik Poornima ritual bathing at Garhmukteshwar on the outskirts of Ghaziabad, the busy National Highway-24 will be out of bounds for all heavy vehicles, police said on Monday.
National Highway-24 is to be widened from 4 lanes to 6 lanes for which tenders will be released this month by the National Highway Authority of India.
