New Delhi:

In the wake of Jat leaders in Haryana launching fresh stir over quota, prohibitory orders will be imposed in certain areas of the national capital bordering the neighbouring state along with a few other places by tomorrow, Delhi Police said today.

“Delhi Police to impose CrPC section 144 in the bordering districts of Delhi and other parts of city which are likely to have protests in connection with Jat quota demand,” a statement by Delhi Police said.

The prohibitory orders will be implemented in five police sub-divisions -Dwarka and Najafgarh in South West Delhi, Alipur and Bawana in outer Delhi and Mukherjee Nagar in North West Delhi, the senior police said. These five sub-divisions cover over 15 police stations.

In the first phase of the Jat agitation, violence was witnessed in and around Mukherjee Nagar and Najafgarh areas.

In February, the agitating members of Jat community had held demonstrations at several places in the city, leading to severe disruption of traffic on key arterial roads.

Damage to public property by the protesters, who blocked major state border entry points, including Sindhu border, Nangloi-Bahadurgarh Road, Karnal road, Tikari, Jharoda and Madhuban Chowk in southwest and outer Delhi, creating major traffic snarls which affected many areas in the city.
