Commissioner of Police Amitesh Kumar has imposed Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure prohibiting eunuchs visiting public places, houses, wedding ceremonies and other programmes uninvitedly across the Second Capital to extort money from citizens.
Several complaints of harassment by eunuchs, who often visit public places, traffic signals, residential premises, marriage venues and extort money, were received by the police.
Some of the citizens also had to face abuses, in the worst cases physical assault too, if they refused to give in to such demands.

The orders shall remain in force till April 17, 2023.
