GOVERNMENT OF MIZORAM
OFFICE OF THE SUB-DIVISIONAL MAGISTRATE
CHAWNGTE SUB-DIVISION: CHAWNGTE
Dated Chawngte the 10th June, 2022
Whereas, it has been made aware to the undersigned of the pervasiveness of teer gambling across Chawngte Sub-Division. Gambling, once considered to be associated with stigma and vice, is now generally perceived as a harmless adult entertainment and has become mainstream in our society. With increased exposure to, and availability of unregulated forms of gambling, more youth are succumbing to the temptation and pressure to engage in these activities. Serious gambling habits undermine the future development, academic life and, career. The effect on social, financial and emotional life can be devastating and spill over into all other areas.
Now, therefore, I, Dr. Manesia Khaimeichho, MCS, Sub-Divisional Magistrate, Chawngte, in exercise of power conferred on me under section 133 (1)(b) CrPC, do hereby order to stop buying and selling of “teer” in Chawngte Sub-Division.
This order shall come into force with immediate effect and shall remain in force until and unless revoked. Violation of this order shall make one liable to punishment under Sec. 188 CrPC.
Given under my hand and seal of this office this 10th day of June 2022.
(Dr. MANESIA KHAIMEICHHO)
Sub-Divisional Magistrate Chawngte
