Warangal: Warangal Commissioner of Police G Sudheer Babu has on Wednesday issued orders prohibiting consumption of liquor at public places under the Commissionerate limits. He issued the orders under Cr PC section 144 following complaints on boozers consuming alcoholic drinks in front of wine shops, public junctions and on roads.

If any person was found violating the orders, he would be booked under IPC section 188 as per the provisions of Warangal (Metropolitan Area) Police Act 2015. The act of public boozing has been causing inconvenience to women, children, and students hence, the prohibitory orders were issued.

In order to control alcoholics consuming liquor at open places police patrolling would be intensified, the Commissioner said. Special wings would be set up under each police division. The public should also extend their cooperation and inform the police if they found anyone consuming liquor publicly, he appealed.

Commissioner Sudheer Babu has chaired the district level committee (DLC) meeting for the prevention of road accidents. He held discussions with RTC, RTA and police officials on measures needed to prevent accidents. RTC Joint Director T Venkat Rao, Regional Manager E Yadagiri and its Vigilance Additional SP V Surender Reddy, Deputy Transport Commissioner Ch Sivalingaiah and others attended the meeting.

Addressing the meeting, the Commissioner suggested setting up Road Accidents Analysis Wing (RAAW) with active coordination of officials of all concerned departments to prevent accidents and to save precious lives. He asked the RTC officials to increase bus services connecting outskirts of the city to prevent private vehicles carrying passengers higher than the permitted numbers.

Similarly additional fixtures fitted in the private vehicles as such auto rickshaws for carrying extra passengers should be removed.
