LUDHIANA: The city po­lice con­ducted draw of lots for is­su­ing tem­po­rary li­cences to shop­keep­ers for putting up stalls of fire­crack­ers at the Grain Mar­ket site of Salem Tabri area.

Li­cences for the site were is­sued to the ap­pli­cants on Thurs­day un­der the su­per­vi­sion of DCP Aashish Chaud­hary at the po­lice com­mis­sioner’s of­fice. The ad­min­is­tra­tion has ear­marked 87 sites for the stalls of fire­crack­ers in the Grain Mar­ket site, for which 77 per­sons had ap­plied. Due to less num­ber of ap­pli­cants, 10 sites were ex­cluded from the draw.

The draw for these sites had been held in the pres­ence of all the ap­pli­cants. One of the ap­pli­cants was called to ran­domly pick two slips, one each from a box con­tain­ing slips of site names and the other con­tain­ing names of the ap­pli­cants. The DCP said that this was done to en­sure trans­parency. He said that draw for the other sites would also be held in this way.

The other sites in­clude the Sec­tor 39-A site op­po­site Vardhman Mill, Chandi­garh Road; fod­der mar­ket Ta­jpur Road; Pakhowal Road near Sid­hwa Canal; Near Women Poly­tech­nic Col­lege; Rishi Na­gar; Fod­der Mar­ket near fire sta­tion, Ham­bra Road and Ur­ban Es­tate Du­gri. The draw for these sites would be car­ried out on Oc­to­ber 15.
