“Others include military, para-military agencies, fire service and ambulances on emergencies. Consequently, I have ordered area commanders, divisional police officers and heads of Tactical/Operational units of the command to ensure that violators of the regulations are arrested and prosecuted.

“The enforcement is aimed at stopping criminal elements from using sirens, flashers and beacons as covers to evade the prying eyes of security operatives, thereby perpetrating their criminal activities in the state this festive season.”
