The Uttarakhand government yesterday approved an ordinance mandating that losses incurred from damage to public and private property during riots be recovered from those deemed to be responsible for the disturbance.

The State cabinet, under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, approved the Uttarakhand Public (Government) and Private Property Damage Recovery (Ordinance) Law 2024 and sent it to the Governor for approval.

According to a statement issued by the state government, if anyone gets injured during a riot, the entire cost of treatment will also be recovered from

those responsible. Apart from this, all expenses incurred during the riot – on the police, administration, and other riot control agencies – will also be recover.

The government has also approved the establishment of a formal Claims Tribunal to deal strictly with rioters. With this, as soon as the law is implemented, strict action can be taken against rioters through the tribunal. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami stated in a social media post that with the introduction of this Act, those who disturb the peace of the State will now have to pay a heavy price.
