Therefore, the deputy commissioner Faisalabad under Section 144 of CrPC has imposed ban and said that no person is allowed to take bath/swim in the canals/rivers within the revenue limits of Faisalabad district. This order has come into force instantly and will remain in force for seven days, he said, adding that strict action would be taken without any discrimination against those people who would be found violating this ban.
