Aliabad, August 13: The administration of Hunza – Nagar District has imposed section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, also known as prohibition of “Unlawful Assembly”, in sub-division Hunza (Tehsil Aliabad and Tehsil Gojal) for a period of 7 days.

Under this law the people of Hunza Valley have been ordered to avoid gathering in groups of 4 or more than 4 people. The people have also been asked to not display any arms an ammunition. The law also bans protests and demonstrations in the valley for the said period.

There is a fear of mass arrests in the valley in vengeance for the heavy destruction of government property two days back, during demonstrations against an incident of police terrorism in the valley, in which two IDPs had been mercilessly shot down by the local police.
