Muktsar, April 5
As some residents of the neighbouring Faridkot district tested positive for Covid-19, the Muktsar District Magistrate (DM) on Sunday authorised sarpanches to seal link roads in the district. The DM, however, told them to keep 19 inter-state roads. The police, too, have begun imposed the curfew strictly by using drone cameras.
Pensions to be disbursed
Officials of the district administration said bank executives would disburse pensions among beneficiaries of the state government’s social welfare schemes by visiting villages and the people should worry about visiting bank branches.
Villagers use drone to enforce curfew norms
To support the efforts of the police, some residents of Samagh village here are using a drone camera to keep a vigil on unnecessary movement of residents in the village during the curfew. Rupinder Singh, a youngster from the village, said: “The drone is helping us to prevent the people from coming out unnecessarily. We have also sealed the village border by setting up four checkpoints.” — TNS
