Jind (Har), May 1: With Jat leaders threatening to hold 'jail bharo' movement from Sunday, May 1 demanding the release of those arrested during the quota stir, district administration clamped prohibitory orders here for two days.

District Magistrate Vinay Singh on Saturday said they have imposed section 144 of CrPC for two days in the Jind municipality area to prevent any untoward incident during the 'jail bharo' movement.

He also said that adequate security arrangements have been made and senior district officials appointed as duty magistrate to control the situation today.

The guesthouse owners have been instructed to not allow gathering of people in Dharamshalas, the District Magistrate said.

Meanwhile, Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS), which spearheaded the quota stir in February, extended their support to the 'jail bharo' movement being organised by Jat Yuva Ekta Manch.

ABJASS district president Captain Bhoop Singh claimed that the police have been arresting innocent youths and the families of those who were killed in the stir have also not received adequate compensation yet.

That is why the Samiti decided to support the 'jail bharo' movement and ABJASS members would today take part in it at Ikkis Chungi here, Singh said.
