Panchkula, May 3
The first day of the week-long lockdown imposed by the state government to check the spread of Covid-19 evoked a mixed response in the district.
A large number of private vehicles, including two-wheelers, were seen plying on roads and parked in the sector markets, including that of Sector 11.
The police had put up nakas across the district and questioned every vehicle if they were out only for a valid reason.
The SHO (Traffic), Sukhdev Singh, said private vehicles plied in large numbers as if there was no lockdown. ‘’Many openly threw lockdown norms to the wind. When we try to stop commuters, they misbehave with us,’’ he said.
Liquor shops closed, but sale on
Though shutters of liquor shops were down, the “secret” sale was on at a few vends, including that in Sector 11, despite the lockdown restrictions. — TNS
