Police directs bars, restaurants to close by 11:30 pm in Ludhiana

Ludhiana (Punjab), Sep 18 (ANI): Commissioner of Police of Ludhiana, Rakesh Agrawal, has directed the owners of the restaurants, dhabas and bars to close down their shutters by 11:30 pm. In a meeting conducted on September 16, Agrawal gave instructions to bar and restaurant owners not to serve hookah.

He asked the mall authorities to expand the security check so that nobody can enter the premises with any weapon. Apart from this, the eateries have been asked to keep a record of the people coming there.

However, hotel and restaurant owners have pointed out the problem in implementing it, although asserting that they are ready to help. According to sources, during the meeting, the hotel owners have put up their problems.

They said the decision comes at a time when the government is working towards making Ludhiana a smart city. It was decided that a delegation will meet state's Food and Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Bharat Bhushan soon and will take up the issue with the government.
