The move is being viewed as a precautionary measure to prevent a third wave of the Covid pandemic, as well as to maintain law and order in the state, following violent protests in some parts of Maharashtra earlier this year.

Chaitanya S, Deputy Commissioner of Police, issued the prohibition order (operations). It warns that anyone who disobeys the order will be prosecuted under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code and other applicable legal provisions. “The order is hereby passed ex-parte because the notice cannot be served individually to all parties involved.” It will be published in the press for the public’s information,” it stated.
