Gaya District Magistrate Abhishek Kumar Singh imposed the orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code - in what is possibly the first time that Section 144 has been imposed in the state due to extreme weather conditions.
In a circular, Singh has advised people to remain indoors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The district administration has also imposed a ban on the construction work from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while work under MNREGA programmes will not be done after 10.30 a.m. and no meeting will be allowed in the open during this time.
At least 184 people dead and several hospitalised.
