Lucknow: Police and district administration on Tuesday night decided to extend prohibitory orders under CRPC section 144 till November 8 in view of ongoing covid-19 pandemic, ahead of upcoming festivals of Navratri, Dussehra, Diwali, Bhai Dhooj, Barawafat and Chhath.

This implies that approval of police and district administration would be essential for any event with a gathering of more than five people. Joint commissioner of police, Piyush Mordia, said anti-social elements may try to vitiate the atmosphere during festivals. Therefore, using powers under CrPC Section 144, these orders have been passed to maintain peace and harmony and for the safety of public and property.

Mordia said all guidelines issued by the ministry of home affairs must be followed for setting up Durga Puja pandals and organising Dussehra celebrations.

When is Navratri 2021?: According to the Hindu calendar, this year Navratri falls on Thursday, October 7. The festival will end on October 15, 2021.  During the nine days of Navratri, devotees worship nine avatars of Goddess Durga, namely Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skanda Mata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri.
