Mangaluru, February 14
Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC have been clamped around the 200-metre radius of all high schools within the city police commissionerate limits from Monday till February 19.
The move is part of a precautionary measure in view of the hijab controversy.
The high schools are reopening on Monday after the holiday declared by the state government.
City police commissioner N Shashi Kumar issued the order, which will be effective from 6 am on Monday till 6 pm on February 19.
As the Mangaluru Commissionerate is currently a very sensitive region, the orders had been clamped to maintain law and order and to prevent crowd formation, the commissioner said in a communique.
The Udupi district administration has already issued similar orders around all high schools in the district for the same period.
