Amritsar, May 20
The district administration today imposed a ban on carrying of firearms and sharp-edged weapons by promulgating Section 144 in the city.
Deputy commissioner Kahan Singh Pannu said this decision had been taken in view of the situation created over the Dera Sacha Sauda controversy. However, personnel of the Army and paramilitary forces who are legally authorised to carry weapons, besides those who carry these as a part of their religion had been exempted from the order.
