QUETTA: The Balochistan government has imposed a ban on taking out processions and staging rallies and sit-ins on roads under the Criminal Law Amendment Ordinance promulgated by the provincial governor on Saturday.

The ordinance, which would be applicable with immediate effect, is aimed at preventing any attempt to create hurdles in free and smooth movement of the people in their daily life.

Those who will violate the ban would be awarded three to six months’ imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs10,000.
