Hospitals, schools, courts to be made 'no horn zones'

The Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan today directed for making areas housing educational institutions, hospitals and courts as ‘’no horn zones’’.

“Any person found violating the orders shall be dealt strictly as per the law,” he said, asking officers to ensure installation of maximum number of sign boards in this regard near hospitals, educational institutions and courts.

Meanwhile, Khan directed officers concerned to take strict action against tipper drivers found involved in ferrying uncovered building material across the city, which leads to flying off the material particles causing air pollution, besides polluting water bodies.

He said the violators of the order shall be dealt as per the law.
