Gurugram: Prohibitory orders banning the assembly of five or more persons have been imposed in Gurugram in view of a court likely to pronounce sentence on those convicted for the violence at a Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar that left a senior officer dead and several others injured.

The decision to impose Section 144 of the Code for Criminal Procedure in Gurugram district with immediate effect and till May 14 also comes in the wake of plans of Jat protesters from Haryana to take their stir to Delhi on March 20.

The district administration is prepared to meet all eventualities, an official said on Saturday.

The violence on July 18, 2012, on Maruti Suzuki India's Manesar plant near here had left the company's Human Resource Department General Manager Ashwin Kumar Dev dead and over 50 persons injured. Several policemen were also injured in the fracas.

As per orders issued by District Magistrate Hardeep Singh, all unlawful activities, blocking of roads, passages, railway tracks, water channels, power houses etc. by agitators have been banned.

Carrying of firearms, batons and sharp-edged weapons of offence that are likely to cause obstruction in maintenance of peace and tranquility has also been prohibited.

Any person contravening the order is liable for punishment under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.

The orders will not apply to police force and other public servants on duty for maintenance of law and order.

A senior district official said that during February 2016 agitation by the Jats, Gurugram district remained peaceful even as violence was reported from other districts.

At that time, the borders of Gurgaon district along Jhajjar district and Kapashera area in Delhi were sealed.
