Police take out flag march

Tarn Taran, April 8

The police have booked 125 persons for violating curfew norms on Tuesday and Wednesday. Despite continuous efforts of the administration to make people aware about the need to stay indoors and follow curfew guidelines, many violators are found defying the orders. Those who failed to give satisfactory reasons for their travel were booked by the police. The police also carried out a flag march in Tarn Taran, Patti, Bhikhiwind and other places in the district under the guidance of SSP Dhruv Dahiya. The SSP appealed the people to remain indoors and avoid coming out.

Daily a number of cases are registered against curfew violators. The police said 15 persons playing cards in Khadoor Sahib at a common place were booked under Sections 188 and 269 of the IPC by the Goindwal Sahib police. Repeated appeals made by various health experts and the government are found of no use as people are continuing with violating curfew norms and not practicing social distancing.

The administration too is taking strict action against the violators yet the scenario is no better. A large number of people ignore the advice and suggestions of experts which is given for their betterment. In another case, 30 persons who failed to give satisfactory reasons for being outside at public place and flouting curfew norms were booked in Manochahal Kalan village. Same cases were seen in Gill Waraich, Chuslewar, Algon Khurad, Bhojranwala (Chabal) and other villages too. The accused have been booked under Sections 188 and 269 of the IPC and the Disaster Management Act 2005.
