In view of a rise in COVID-19 cases and the upcoming festivals, the administration of UP's Gautam Buddha Nagar has imposed section 144 of the CrPC from May 1 to 31. Offering Namaz or organising puja in public places will be banned during the period, the Police Commissionerate said. Protests or hunger strikes cannot be held without prior permission.
