Amritsar, February 23

Alarmed over the surge in the Covid-19 positive cases, the state government issued directions to the Police Department to act sternly against the ones who violate health guidelines.

Police Commissioner Dr Sukhchain Singh Gill urged residents to wear mask and practise social distancing or be prepared to face the music.

The Police Commissioner said there has been a sharp rise in positive cases in the city. It has been observed that people were not wearing mask or maintaining social distancing thereby not only increasing the risk of contracting the virus, but also putting lives of others in danger.

“Unfortunately, people are not taking it seriously. Therefore, stern action will be taken against those who do not wear mask and practise social distancing,” he said and that instructions were passed on to police personnel.
