After the state government ordered fresh restrictions following a surge in Covid-19 cases, the police have begun to act tough against lockdown violators in the district.

The Sahnewal police today registered two cases against a lockdown violator of New Ram Nagar of Ludhiana, who kept his liquor vend open after lockdown hours.

Investigating officer Karnail Singh said Rinku and another unidentified youth had kept their liquor shops open in New Ram Nagar colony after the lockdown hour. The owners also disregarded social-distancing norms and allowed large gatherings around the shops.

SHO Sahnewal Balwinder Singh said the police did not spare any violator.

“It is the duty of the public to follow all Covid norms. If they do not do so, they should be ready to face consequences as well. The situation is such that no relaxation on any part will be tolerated. We expect people to cooperate with the police and inform us about any violation around their areas as it is important to stop the second wave,” he said.
