1 min read

Mysuru: Police had to intervene and close the shops at Udayagiri in the city on Thursday that had allegedly remained open even after the restricted hours of 10 am.

With Eid-Ul-Fitr (Ramzan) on Friday, some of the vendors and shoppers were busy on the eve, prompting the police to intervene. The traders downed shutters and the people returned home disappointed.

Some of the local leaders also helped the police in this regard.

It was also alleged that, while the local vendors had downed shutters complying with the Covid Curfew, some of the outsiders had set up make-shift shops eyeing festival business. They were cleared with the help of local vendors.

DCP (Law and order) A N Prakash Gowda told Mysoorunews.com “it’s festive season and a day before the festival people were busy in shopping till afternoon. Hence we advised the shop owners to close and they readily obliged.”

City police have already interacted with moulvis and religious leaders requesting them to not to organise mass prayers. This time Ramzan prayers are restricted to homes only.

On the other hand, security is tightened at NR constituency limits. More than 500 personnel are deployed and three each of KSRP and CAR platoons will be positioned from 6 AM. The officers in the cadres of DySP and inspector will supervise the security arrangements, said DCP Gowda.
