Barely hours after imposing restrictions on male pillion riders, the police have withdrawn the said order.
Earlier in the day, ADGP Alok Kumar had said that male pillion riders aged over 18 years will not be allowed to travel on two-wheelers for a one-week period. Women, children, and senior citizens were exempted from this order.
Meanwhile, the police have also relaxed the weeklong restrictions that were imposed in the district. Shops have been permitted to remain open till 9 pm for next three days from August 5 onwards and liquor shops can reopen from August 5 till 6pm. Other restrictions imposed under CrPC 144 will continue as earlier till 6 am on August 8.
