“As many as 149 samples of suspected patients were sent for testing today and their results are expected shortly,” said the Civil Surgeon, Dr Rajesh Bagga.

He appealed to the residents to follow all directions of the Punjab Government and stay home.

Meanwhile, 11 trains carrying 1,600 migrants each left for different states from here.

The committee of SS Jain Girls School has complained about unruly behaviour of the migrants sheltered at the school premises.

Rajiv Jain, secretary of SS Jain Girls School Committee, said: “No social distancing sense prevails on the campus. Those sheltered at the school roam around unnecessarily and don’t wear masks. They damage school property and bathe in the open, wasting a lot of water. There is no official on duty from the administration to keep a check on them,” he said.

The school committee has allowed the use of its branches on Benjamin Road and at Kidwai Nagar for the safe stay of migrants.

Khanna: The police on Friday night swung into action after a number of people were seen moving on city streets after 7 pm. The police teams told people to stay home during night curfew.

The DSP said such raids were carried out in almost all areas of the Khanna police district.

The police teams, accompanied by respective SHOs, patrolled Amloh Road, Peerkhana Road, Guru Amar Dass Market and other areas and they told residents to stay indoors. — OC
