When a rooster turned into a nuisance
The Chandigarh Police was left bemused when a retired Army officer submitted a complaint stating that the poultry fowl of his neighbour was ‘disturbing peace’ at odd hours. In his complaint, Major (retd) HS Dilawari stated that he and his wife had multiple health problems for which sound rest is needed. But, he said, their sleep was constantly disturbed as their neighbour’s rooster crowing at the break of dawn and afternoon was making it tough to sleep. Later, the police advised the complainant to approach the Chandigarh animal husbandry department for redressal of his problem.

Flyover project delayed again
As the Mohali district administration failed to acquire land and properties constructed along the road, the deadline of the already delayed Kharar flyover was extended to March 2020. Around 370 structures along the road are yet to be demolished. These structures are halting construction work of the flyover. Now, the district administration has issued notices to owners of these properties to vacate by June 25. After the deadline expires, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) will start demolishing the structures. 

Attacks on docs: Strict law may be adopted
The Chandigarh Administration might adopt the Punjab Protection of Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage to Property) Act. Also, more stringent provisions could be incorporated under this Act. Once framed, the draft will be sent to the Ministry of Home Affairs for approval. According to the IMA, no case was registered under this Act even as the law was introduced in both Punjab and Haryana in 2009.
