Muktsar, April 4

After one Covid patient has been detected in neighbouring Faridkot district and three in Mansa district, residents on Saturday appealed to the district administration to impose the curfew more strictly. Notably, 14 persons, who had come to Mukstar after attending Tablighi Jamaat congregation in Delhi, have also been isolated at the local Civil Hospital and their reports of their Covid tests are awaited.

However, some people are still roaming on roads and defying the curfew orders issued by the District Magistrate under Section 144 of the CrPC. Though cops are deployed, people are still taking the pandemic lightly.

Naresh Kumar, a local resident, said, “We should follow the Covid safety guidelines issued by the government. The Covid graph is going upwards day by day in the country. Earlier our region was safe, but now some coronavirus positive patients have been found in neighbouring districts. The administration should also take strict action against those who still roam on roads. These people are not just putting their lives at risk, but others as well. We should simply stay at home to stay safe.”

Another local resident Pawandeep Singh, said, “This is the right time to act against curfew violators. Some neighbouring towns like Abohar have started acted tough against unnecessary movement from Saturday.
