Bathinda, April 8

Despite clear instructions from the Punjab Government and the district administration, some people are still venturing out of their homes without any genuine reason. Now to deal with the violators strictly, the police have started using two drones to keep an eye on them.

On being caught roaming on roads without any genuine reason, the violators will be booked and spent to the makeshift open jail at SSD Girls School near Goll Diggi for a day. SSP Dr Nanak Singh said, “Drones are being used to keep a watch on violators in the city. They will not be spared on flouting norms. We have been initiating steps for the safety and health of residents. They should understand this.”

He added that at present, two drones were being used in the city and if required, more drones would be used in the coming days. On Wednesday, the police arrested over 20 persons for roaming on roads without curfew passes. They were sent to the open jail. Besides, four cases were registered against 20 persons for violating the curfew orders in the district. — TNS
