Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru/Udupi (JD/EP)

Mangaluru/Udupi, March 30: The elections to the State Legislative Assembly will be held on May 10. As the model code of conduct is in force, the deputy commissioners of the twin districts has banned carriage and use of all types of guns and ammunition till the election process gets over completely.

Those who are holding licenced weapons for self-defence and protection of farm produce have been asked to deposit them at the nearest police station according to their address or the authorised dealer shops without delay and obtain a receipt.

The weapons can be taken back a week after the announcement of the election results.

The order does not apply to those on government duty, bank security organisations and those in the duty of security agencies. Those in need of  exemption from this order can submit an application before April 5. Such applications will be scrutinised by the screening committee of the city police commissioner/SP and exemption will be given if necessary.

A press release from the deputy commissioner has directed the individuals to inform their nearest police station about any violations of the order including storage, use or carriage of the weapons.
