    Guwahati City Police Bans Crackers Near Noonmati Refinery

    Use of firecrackers and bursting of crackers in the vicinity of Guwahati Refinery and the oil pipelines within the Central Police district is strictly prohibited

    While the Guwahati city is gripped in festivities, the Central Guwahati police has prohibited the use of fireworks, bursting of crackers within a 500-meter radius from the Guwahati Refinery, Noonmati with immediate effect.

    The order was passed by Ripul Das, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Central police district, Guwahati under section 144 CrPC and will remain in force till the midnight of October 29th, 2019. An order copy of the prohibitory order is available with TIME8.

    The order said that the use of firecrackers and bursting of crackers in the vicinity of Guwahati Refinery and the oil pipelines within the Central Police district may cause inflammation as huge quantities of highly volatile and inflammable petroleum products are stored in the refinery and pumped through the oil pipelines passing through the Central police district.

    It added that bursting of crackers may pose danger to the security of the people and the installations in the vicinity of the Refinery.

    Any person aggrieved with the order may appear before the court to file their objection, the order further read.
