Following 72-hour bandh call Itanagar the capital looks isolated

Itanagar:  The capital of Arunachal Pradesh, looked deserted as the capital observed the first day of a 72-hour-long bandh call on May 10.

The announcement of a 72-hour capital bandh by some social activists in connection with the APPSC to meet 13-point demands brought life to a standstill in the capital region of Itanagar.
The Itanagar capital area was completely closed except for hospitals and a few emergency services. Except for a few private vehicles, vehicles were off the roads and shops and government offices remained closed.
According to officials, the shutdown call was declared illegal and unconstitutional by the Supreme Court and the District Magistrate also issued Section 144 of the Penal Code, which prohibits assembly of more than five people at one place.
Police have warned that strict action will be taken against those who violate the law except in genuine cases such as medical emergencies.

Internet services are temporarily down.
Speaking exclusively to Media, SDPO Kamdam Sikom appealed to the citizens to maintain peace and stay at home as the district administration has announced Section 144 CrPC.
Addressing the mediapersons in his office, Deputy Commissioner Talo Potom said that the district administration has also issued an order under Section 144 CrPC in view of apprehension of violence and disturbance of law and order in the capital region.
He said the bandh was “illegal” and the district administration had imposed the Unlawful Activities Act to detain and arrest the bandh enforcers.

Action under the Act is being carried out by police personnel, who will soon become more active. The District Magistrate said that under the Act, police officials can arrest or detain people who violate the order.
“The order issued this time is different from any previous order as this time the administration is taking strict action to suppress the bandh call. We have also directed the police personnel to carry out strict checking, confiscation of any kind of weapons,” he said.
The district administration has also ordered all ICR arm shops to close their respective shops and further directed people to deposit all arms and ammunition at the nearest police station for safekeeping till the situation returns to normal. .
Besides, orders have been issued to close liquor shops and gathering of more than three people has also been banned.
“There may be violence during the bandh call, which will eventually lead to chaos in the entire capital complex. The shopkeepers concerned have therefore been directed to remove stones, stones, iron pipes, stones from nearby shops along NH-415. Remove the tires.
