Ludhiana, April 4

Despite the Ludhiana police claiming round-the-clock patrolling and vigil against curfew violations, residents continue to throw norms to the wind.

In response to the police appeal for reporting areas where curfew violations still prevail, a large number of residents have informed the police about areas where violations are rampant.

Today, DCP Akhil Chaudhary carried out drone surveillance in various locations. The police have been provided with 15 drone cameras.

Jaspreet Singh, in response to the police post on the social media, says: “Ishar Nagar area behind GNE College needs patrolling at least once a day so that people stay home. They just want to do gossips without any fear or social distancing”.

Manish Nayyar says people sit outside their houses all day in Salem Tabri, New Aman Nagar. He requests the deployment of one officer or a security person in the area.

Bhanu Singh says in Gurbagh Colony, Jeewan Nagar, people are seen roaming around all the time. In the evening, while boys play outdoor games, women sit together for gossiping.

“The worst condition of curfew violation is on ATI Road stretch from Arora Palace to Waheguru Road and even at Daba Colony. You can see people standing on street corners, specially youngsters gossiping with each other. Some play cricket. People are sitting in groups on streets all day,” comments Amandeep Verma.

Prince Mishra points out violations at Paramjit Nagar and Mundian Khurd, on Chandigarh Road.

Sanjeev Kumar says residents are not following curfew orders at Sherpur Bazaar, near Aarti Steels on Gill Road, Arora Cinema Road, Old Dana Mandi, Urban Estate near Jamalpur, Daba Road and near New DMCH.
