The 'Take Home' service of restaurants and dhabas across and Greater will remain banned during night curfew period from 10 pm to 6 am, the Gautam Buddh Nagar police said Wednesday.

The district police cited imposition of CrPC section 144 as the reason for the restriction. The decision came in the wake of a restaurant owner in Greater being shot dead late Tuesday night.

"CrPC Section 144 is imposed in Gautam Buddh Nagar. UP's Additional Director General (law and order) Prashant Kumar has directed all districts in the state to ensure compliance of the night curfew from 10 pm to 6 am every day," the police said in a statement.

"All usual activities except emergency and necessary services like health care will be completely banned during the night curfew. There will also be a ban on 'Take Home' services of hotels and dhabas etc. after 10 pm till 6 am," the police added.

Industrial units, however, will continue to function as before, it added.

Gautam Buddh Nagar Police Commissioner Alok Singh has directed all police officers and station in-charges in the district to ensure strict compliance of these instructions, according to the statement.

The 38-year-old Suneel Agarwal, who owned a restaurant in Greater Noida, was shot dead allegedly by three drunk men late Tuesday night outside his workplace, police officials said.

The trio, who had gotten into argument with Agarwal, was arrested and sent to jail on Wednesday after an encounter with the local police in which one of the accused got bullet injuries, the officials said.
