There will be a complete ban on pillion riding on the 9th and 10th of Muharramul Haram here in the provincial metropolis, announced Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Ghulam Mahmood Dogar on Tuesday.
The Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) said the pillion-riding will remain banned on the 9th and 10th as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incident during the processions.
Ghulam Mahmood Dogar further said that mobile phone services will also remain suspended on the routes of processions, while the processions will be monitored through drone cameras.
Dogar vowed strict action against those found spreading anarchy during Muharramul Haram. “The troublemakers will be dealt with sternly irrespective of their social or political status.
Any person found involved in any sort of hate-mongering and hampering creation of peace will be dealt as criminal only.”
It is to be noted that the government has devised various measures to ensure peace and tranquillity during Ashura-i-Muharram.
