In the wake of Bulandshahar fiasco where an inspector was allegedly lynched by a rampaging mob that set fire to a police station, district magistrate (DM) Ghaziabad, Ritu Maheshwari had invoked Section 144 in Ghaziabad that prohibits gathering of 5 or more than 5 people at a place. The press note issued by the DM office said that in the wake of several festivals as well as entrance exams it was necessary to invoke this order. There are other prohibitions also that the public will have to follow till the order is in place. reporter
