Shops open beyond 7pm, three booked in Amritsar

Amritsar, May 23

Even as the relaxation timings in the lockdown period are till 7pm, people still come out on roads in the evening, inviting the ire of policemen.

“The district administration has given clear directions that no commercial activity is allowed after 7pm and people are supposed to remain indoors, but they care two hoots,” said a cop on duty in the Putlighar area.

On Friday, the police booked three shopkeepers, including a cigarette vendor, for opening their establishments after permissible time. Moreover, social distancing is also a casualty at these shops.

If police officials are to be believed, people are not serious about taking precautionary measures in view of the coronavirus pandemic. DCP, Law and Order, Jagmohan Singh said, “We urge the people to follow the guidelines issued by the district administration else action would be taken as per the law.” — TNS
