Ujjain: A total of 110 two and 4-wheelers of people who were found commuting for nonessential reasons were confiscated by city administration on Saturday. Collector Asheesh Singh and SP Satyendra Kumar Shukla had instructed all the incident commanders, CSPs, executive magistrates and police officers to confiscate two-wheelers and four-wheelers barring medical emergency vehicles which are found on roads during Janta Curfew. As per the orders, the seized vehicles would be released only after following due judicial process. Collector has appealed to the people not to leave their homes without any urgent work.

Meanwhile, collector suspended assistant pension officer GL Solanki with immediate effect over dereliction of duty and for disobeying orders. Collector had deputed Solanki for the management and supervision of oxygen supply and consumption in Deshmukh Hospital and control of hospitalisation parameters and to ensure successful execution of Ayushman Bharat Yojana. But during an inspection by the officer-in-charge and municipal corporation commissioner Kshitij Singhal on May 14, the said officer was not found in the hospital and it was found that he never attended the hospital earlier as well.

MARRIAGES HELD AFTER MAY 5 WON’T BE REGISTERED

According to the instructions, if marriages after May 5 have been registered by mistake, they should be aborted with immediate effect.

The cancellation of the registration of the said shops and establishments should also be done with immediate effect.
