As heavy rain during the ongoing monsoon is expected to lead to a rise in the water level of the Ghaggar, which passes through the district, Deputy Commissioner of Police Mohit Handa today imposed Section 144 of the CrPC near its banks.
As per the order, approach within 20 metres of the banks of any river/rivulet by any person (adult or child) is now prohibited until September 26.
At least 13 locations near the Ghaggar and its tributaries — the Tangri and the Kaushalya — have been marked as flood-prone.
The DCP also directed the Forest Department, Irrigation Department and other departments concerned to put up a clear warning or notice boards near the rivers to prevent any untoward incident.
It is usually seen that people, mainly children from slums, take a bath in the Ghaggar, putting their lives at risk. Many drowning mishaps have been reported over the past years.
