Bathinda, March 31

The police have sealed the inter-state borders in the district amid the Covid scare.

AK Mittal, Inspector General of Police, Bathinda Range, said the supply chain of essential commodities in Bathinda, Muktsar and Mansa would not be affected. He said strict action would be taken against violators of the curfew orders. He appealed to landlords to support their tenants during this difficult period.

On Tuesday, he held a meeting with Bathinda SSP Dr. Nanak Singh, Muktsar SSP Rajbachan Singh Sandhu and Mansa SSP Narinder Bhargava and reviewed the curfew situation. Bathinda DC B Srinivasan was also present at the meeting.

Mittal said people were cooperating in the curfew, but those coming out of their houses without curfew passes were posing a danger to society. He added that the police would take action against them.

Mittal urged factory owners to provide food and assistance to workers.

B Srinivasan said the supply of essential commodities had now been restored. He said NGOs and residents, who want to provide ration or any other essential item, could contact the office of the MC Commissioner.

The DC said curfew passes were being given to persons having medical emergency.
