Restaurant owners along Sidhra Road in Jammu have claimed that they have been asked by the district administration to shut their operations.
There are more than 40 restaurants along Sidhra Road on the outskirts of Jammu that have been allegedly asked to shut their operations by the administration.
A restaurant owner claimed that they were not told by the administration about the reason to shut their operations. They alleged that they were being harassed by the district administration of Jammu without giving a reason to close their food joints.
