The UP Control of Goonda (Amendment) Ordinance, 2015 was approved by Governor Ram Naik, a Raj Bhawan spokesman said on Friday. It seeks to amend the Uttar Pradesh Control of Goonda Act, 1970, by including new sections to bring more crimes in its purview. Henceforth, people found guilty of these offences will be booked under the Act. Earlier, these crimes were treated as cognisable offence. With the UP Legislature scheduled to meet on February 18, a legislation will have to be introduced to replace the measure.

The Uttar Pradesh Control of Goonda Act defines a goonda as a person, who either by himself or as a member or leader of a gang, habitually commits or attempts to commit, or abets the commission of an offence punishable under Section 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot) of IPC or has been convicted for an offence punishable under the Suppression of Immoral Traffic in Women and Girls Act, 1956.
