DIMAPUR — Rohit Singh, the district magistrate of Tseminyu, has directed all licenced arms holders in Tseminyu to deposit arms and ammunition in their possession at the nearest police station by March 30.

According to a DIPR report, the arms and ammunition that would be deposited will be released one week after the election results are declared.

He notified that, in light of the upcoming Lok Sabha election, carrying licenced arms may lead to intimidation of electors, a breach of peace and tranquillity, and a disruption of public order within the Tseminyu District, all of which may have an adverse impact on the peaceful, free, and fair conduct of the election.

It stated that the officer in charge of the concerned police station would issue the owner a receipt, keep proper records, and ensure the safe custody of the deposited arms and ammunition. This order is applicable to all persons within Tseminyu district except the armed forces of the union and state, paramilitary forces, police personnel, and other enforcement agencies authorised to carry arms.

“In view of the emergent circumstances, this order is being issued ex-parte and is issued to the public in general,” it said.

The district magistrate has prohibited the carrying of licenced arms and ammunition within Tseminyu, whether in public, during meetings, or otherwise, with immediate effect. Any person or group found to be in violation of this order would be liable to prosecution under the relevant provisions of the law.
