Chandigarh HC wants to review all licences & permissions in its city


Based on a plea against the Chandigarh police after a shooting incident, the court ‘doesn’t want the city to turn into a haven for hooligans at night’.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has directed the Chandigarh administration to submit the details of clubs, discos and pubs across the city along with their locations, functioning and permissions granted to them.

The directions came from the court headed by Justice Rajan Gupta during the resumed hearing of a petition filed by a women petitioner seeking protection to her life and liberty on the ground that she and her family members are being harassed in the hands of Chandigarh police for questioning about the shootout outside the Score Discotheque in Sector 8 on June 1, ’15.

During the hearing of the case, Dalbir Singh, the station house officer of Sector North police station, submitted his affidavit in the case about the details of an FIR registered on June 2 about the shootout outside the discotheque. As the accused were creating ruckus in an inebriated state, they were asked to leave the discotheque. However, one of the accused fired at a private security of the discotheque.

“This court expects that administration is conscious of the fact that the city cannot be allowed to turn into haven for hooligans at night,” Justice Gupta had earlier observed.

The court was informed that restaurants, dhabas, discos, clubs have to separately apply for liquor license which is issued to them as L-4, L-5 licenses for consumption on the premises.
