CHANDIGARH: Punjab government today imposed a ban on the sale of army uniforms across the state.

"The state government has banned the sale of army uniforms without valid identification in all areas," an official spokesman said here.

Punjab had witnessed terror attacks in Pathankot and Gurdaspur in the recent past where militants had disguised themselves in the army fatigues.

Any person who wants to buy the uniform would have to submit a self-attested copy of his identity card and phone number with the shopkeeper and this record would be duly maintained along with date of sale in the record register of the shopkeeper, he said.

"These orders would remain in force till April 21, 2016," he added, adding next course of action will be decided afterwards.

The state has also banned use of red and blue coloured stickers used by police on vehicles.

The government has also prohibited the use of plates of political parties on vehicles with immediate effect, he said.
