Section 144 imposed in Punjab for next 7 days due to security threats

Punjab Home Department Secretary Noor-Ul-Amin Mengal has issued a notification to implement Section 144 to protect human lives and property.

Section 144 is imposed in Punjab for the next seven days due to security threats.

Punjab Home Department Secretary Noor-Ul-Amin Mengal on Friday signed a notification to impose Section 144 across the province in light of “the prevailing law and order situation.”

Section 144 has been imposed with immediate effect and will be in place for seven days till June 27, banning meetings, processions, rallies, sit-ins and protests across Punjab.

The order states: “It has been observed that in view of the prevailing law and order situation and security threats, any gathering/ assembly is likely to provide soft targets to terrorists and miscreants, which not only pose serious security threats but is also likely to cause a threat to the public at peace and order as well as inconvenience to public at large.”

The imposition of Section 144 across Punjab comes as PTI announced nationwide protests for the release of incarcerated leader Imran Khan.

Leader of the Opposition Omar Ayub speaking in the National Assembly today, condemned the imposition of Section 144 and asked NA deputy speaker Ghulam Mustafa Shah to rule that the ban was a constitutional violation.
