Chandigarh, October 24

Despite a ban, the city today saw bursting of crackers on the occasion of Karva Chauth. Earlier, the rule was broken during the Dasehra celebrations. Dasehra organisers had used crackers in effigies and also burst crackers during the celebrations.

The violation led to registration of FIRs against different Ramlila and Dasehra organising committees.

Ahead of the festival season, the UT Administration had on October 12 imposed a complete ban on the sale or use of crackers of any kind throughout the city.
