People should not take the lockdown lightly, with the excuse of essential goods, implement social distancing properly: Director General of Police Shri Shivananda Jha.
To increase surveillance in cluster quarantine areas, police will increase footpatrol and motorcycle patrol, SOG and Crime Branch will also join
Shri Shivanand Jha, Director General of State Police, urged the citizens to stay indoors, stating that they would increase police foot patrols and motorcycle patrols to make surveillance tight in lockdown and cluster quarantine areas to prevent the rising transmission of corona virus.
Giving details to the media about the functioning of the police department during the execution of the lockdown, Mr. Zha added that in the event of a speedy transition in the city of Ahmedabad, the crime branch and the Special Operations Group (SOG) will be joined by the police system in patrol operations. With the help of the police system in the cluster quarantine areas of Ahmedabad city, the health department will make it more intensive to check the transmission of corona. For this, adequate police staff has also been allotted to protect the health workers, he added.
Mr Zha expressed concern that people were still coming out of their walk of walking-jogging in the morning and taking the necessary items in the evening, violating social distancing. In this case, from now on, if anyone looks at the crime, then the crime will be registered against them. Also, those who have been exempted from the system of lockdown in the name of essential goods have also come out against abusing this exemption, which is quite unfair. A case of domestic liquor trafficking has been brought against a private ambulance van in the outskirts of Naroda Police Station in Ahmedabad, against which we have taken stern action.
Informing about the outbreak from Nizamuddin Markaz, Mr. Za said that so far 127 people have been identified in the state. All these people’s corona tests have been done; Of these, more than one person’s case has come to the top of the positive today.
All but the following are currently quarantined. In addition, the testing and investigation of people belonging to another group, Sura Group, is also underway.
