DIBRUGARH, Sept 12 - The district administration today clamped prohibitory orders in the ongoing four-lane highway construction areas in Jotiyani, Laokhowa and Gojpuria villages under Moran mouza, by invoking Section 144 CRPC.
The Additional Deputy Magistrate Pabitra Kumar Das by an order has banned assembly of more than five persons in the area, public gathering, all forms of demonstrations and dharnas, effigy burning, construction of swahid bedis etc.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways had acquired the plot stretch in the area for the four-lane highway construction and, accordingly, had notified under the National Highways Act 1956 (D).
The process for zirat and compensation for the acquired land is going on. However, since some sections of the people were obstructing the construction works over the dispute of a piece of land, the prohibitory orders had to be clamped, said an official press statement.
