Tarn Taran, May 16

With the approval of the district police, residents have set up ‘thikri pehras’ in 122 villages of the district to keep a vigil on the entry of suspected persons to their villages to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The district has around 550 villages.

Senior Superintendent of Police Dhruman H Nimbale said here on Sunday that in these 122 villages, nakas had been installed on the entry points by villagers and the villages cordoned off to check the entry of outsiders. The SSP said outsiders would be asked about their identity and the information would be given to the police in case they do not belong to the village. Nimbale said ‘thikri pehras’ would also be conducted in other villages of the district.
