Whereas, the BS authorities during the meeting of District level standing committee on Border Security, took up the issue of imposition of night curfew in the border area, in a strip of 01 Km from the International border from 9 pm to 6 am daily, enabling them to perform their duties more effectively; and Whereas, to ensure smooth functioning as well as better domination of border by BS authorities, close to the border areas and to preclude nefarious activities close to the border areas, the regulation in the movement of people has become imminent, particularly in the area upto 01 Km from the International Border; and
Whereas, it is felt by District Administration, that it is expedient that the movement of people in border areas is regulated so that there is better area domination by BS in border area and nefarious designs of forces inimical to Indian security are subverted; and
In view of the above, I Anuradha Gupta, JKAS, District Magistrate, Samba in exercise of the powers vested in me under section 144 of Criminal Procedure Code, do hereby order that no person/group of persons, shall move in the areas up to 1.0 Km along the International Border in district Samba from 2100 hrs to 0600 hrs. (9.00 pm to 6.00 am during the night). In case the movement is necessary, the person/persons are required to produce their respective ID Cards to BS/Police authorities.
Any person found violating the aforementioned order shall be dealt with, in accordance with law. Since it is not possible to serve the order individually, it is being issued ex-parte.
This order shall come into force with Immedlate effect and shall remain in force for a period of two months from the date of its issuance, if not withdrawn/rescinded earlier.
