Hoshiarpur, May 3

As Covid-19 surges, Senior Superintendent of Police Navjot Singh Mahal has appealed to people to support police personnel and the district administration by staying indoors and obeying the health guidelines issued by the government.

Three booked for partying at night

The police have booked three persons, who were holding a party at office of a property advisor near Tanda bypass chowk in Hoshiarpur. The police team led by DSP Madhvi Sharma was checking shops in the area, where the property advisor’s office was found open. Some people were found partying without mask and consuming alcohol said the DSP. A case under Section 188 of the IPC, the Disaster Management Act and the Epidemics Act has been registered against them.

The SSP said rather than enforcing the norms, residents should follow the rules to tackle the pandemic. Taking stern action against violators, 46 FIRs were registered during the weekend lockdown in Hoshiarpur, said the SSP.

Nakas were set up throughout the city and those found wandering without any reason booked. He said people should follow the guideluines, else all the efforts of the administration would go in vain.

The SSP said all non-essential shops, including salons, jewellery and clothes shops, would remain closed till May 15. He said except essential shops (grocery and medicines) everything would stay close. The SSP pointed out that there’s complete night curfew from 6 pm to 5 am and people should not violate the same.

As per directions of the government, dine-in has been prohibited in hotels/ restaurants. Only two passengers can travel in a four-wheeler and one person on a two-wheeler.
