Violation of lockdown, Administration directs forces to act tough

Srinagar, May 4: As the deadly coronavirus is spreading fast in Kashmir valley, the authorities have directed forces to act tough against violators.
“Whosoever irrespective of his/her official position/status violating the lockdown orders will face the law. Those who are violating the orders in this regard will be strictly punished ”, an official, privy to the orders told early times.
The government has said that there was no room for any exemption. “Everybody has to obey and fully abide the government’s orders and decisions as they are aimed at the security of people.” The Divisional administration has made a fervent appeal to the people to follow the lockdown orders of the government to save themselves.
“We are trying our level best to prevent spread of Covid-19 in the valley. People must understand that this lockdown is not for preventing any law and order issue, but it is to save lives,” one of the top officials in the Divisional administration told early times.
He said that many people are still not taking the lockdown seriously. “Please save yourself, save your family, follow the instructions seriously. I request you to follow all the directions,” he said.
Sources said that at several places people were seen roaming and gathering, as a consequence of which directions have been passed to police and district administration to act tough which may include lodging FIRs against erring citizens.
“There will be strict restrictions in the areas declared red zones and the people will stay in their homes to ensure complete lockdown. Strict action will be taken against those who violate the prohibitory orders,” sources said.
According to officials, people are thronging markets particularly after the deployment is lifted which is clear violation of lockdown as it is meant for 24 hours.
Authorities have booked dozens of people for violating government orders aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus.
Reliable sources in the administration revealed that whosoever trespasses the lockdown will face a huge fine or a jail term of at least six months.
It is to mention here that the administration Saturday said that the entire Valley will be treated as red zone and no relaxation except those permissible in such cases will be allowed. The decision comes in the wake of the two-week-long extension in the national lockdown beginning on Monday.
Divisional commissioner has said that there is very little difference between the red and the orange zones given the type of restrictions to be imposed and the level of caution to be exercised.
"We cannot afford to lower the guard at this time. All the ten districts of the Valley will be treated as the red zone till further orders,” he had said.
Fortunately no district in the Jammu division has been classified as the red zone as all the ten districts of Jammu, Samba, Kathua, Reasi, Udhampur, Ramban, Poonch, Rajouri, Doda and Kishtwar have been classified as orange zone.
