Bhubaneswar, July 1: The implimentation of the new criminal code, Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita, commenced on Monday in Odisha with the first case registered at Laxmisagar police station, here. One Rudra Prasad Das from the Chintamaniswar area filed the case, alleging that his father was attacked by three assailants on June 29.

Similarly, two FIRs were filed in Delhi. The first FIR, registered under clause 109 (1), addressed a shooting incident in Seelampur that resulted in one person being injured. Meanwhile, the second FIR, filed at Kamla Market around 12:15 am, was against a street vendor who obstructed a road near New Delhi railway station.

The second FIR was initiated under Section 285 of the new criminal code after the street vendor was found selling water bottles and tobacco on the road, causing inconvenience to the public and blocking the passage. Despite efforts by the police to persuade him, he refused to move, leading to his booking under the relevant section of the law.

Section 285 of Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita specifies that anyone causing danger, obstruction, or injury to others in a public way or line of navigation by their actions or negligence with property under their control can be fined up to five thousand rupees.
