Amritsar, April 5

Though a majority of people stayed indoors in view of the accelerating spread of Covid-19, some still came out of their houses.

Those who failed to give satisfactory reasons for their travel were booked by the police. In the past 24 hours, 59 persons were booked for violating curfew in the district. Most of the cases were registered in rural areas. A total of 46 persons were arrested by the police, but were later released on bail.

Amritsar (Rural) SSP Vikram Jeet Duggal said the police impounded around 30 vehicles for curfew violations. “We have been repeatedly appealing to the people to not come out of their homes except in cases of emergency. Many do not comply with the instructions and venture out unnecessarily. We are taking strict action against them,” he said.

Meanwhile, according to the Union Health Ministry, the total number of Covid-19 cases crossed the 3,000 mark on Sunday. Over 70 have died from the disease across the country. In Punjab, 68 cases have been reported, of which six have died.
