Section 144 was imposed in Gautam Buddh Nagar on Friday following the controversy over IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal’s suspension.

Earlier on Thursday, Aam Admi Party activists sat on an indefinite dharna at the office of district magistrate in Greater Noida demanding revocation of suspension of SDM Durga Shakti Nagpal.

Nagpal, a 2010-batch IAS officer of Uttar Pradesh cadre, was suspended on July 27 ostensibly for ordering demolition of wall of a mosque without following due process.

The officer, as Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of Gautam Budh Nagar, had cracked down on sand mafia active in that area of Uttar Pradesh.
