Kashmir Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar on Thursday directed all units in the valley to ensure hassle-free movement of doctors and other essential service workers, including journalists, during the 84-hour Covid lockdown that starts from 7 pm.

People have been asked to dial 112 in case they require any assistance during the lockdown. “During the lockdown, all police units have been directed to facilitate hassle free movement of doctors, health workers and essential services,” Kumar said on the official Twitter handle of Kashmir zone police.

“Journalists are requested to carry their identity cards,” he added.

As J&K is going through the second wave of Covid-19 logging more than 3,000 fresh cases for two consecutive days, the administration has announced an 84-hour lockdown in 11 districts from 7 pm on Thursday to 7 am on Monday. — PTI
