Chandigarh, September 14

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today directed the state and its authorities to implement ‘Unlock 4.0’ guidelines issued by the Department of Home Affairs and Justice in relation to the ban on gatherings.

The direction by the Bench of Justices S Muralidhar and Justice Avneesh Jhingan came after senior advocate Puneet Bail referred to the guidelines on the unlock measures, to be implemented between September 1 and 30.

The guidelines, among other things, make it clear that Section 144 of the CrPC was to be invoked and orders be issued to prohibit all social, political, religious gatherings, protests and demonstrations throughout the state. For monitoring the progress of implementation of the court’s directions, the matter was directed to be listed again on Tuesday before the regular Bench.

The Bench was hearing an application filed in an ongoing petition by Mohit Kapoor against the State of Punjab and other respondents. It was filed in light of widespread protests by farmers on the opening date of Parliament’s session.
