Raipur: Raipur SSP Ajay Yadav has appealed district residents to strictly follow lockdown guidelines to avoid any further extension of lockdown in the district.
Talking to media persons late on Monday, Yadav said that some people have been found roaming outside unnecessarily in the past two days amidst complete lockdown in the district. Police is also taking action against such people. However, we have requested people to please follow the lockdown rules for everyone’s safety.
“People can come out in case of any medical emergency and the police will also help them in such situations. But don’t roam unnecessarily, so that we won’t be forced to extend this lockdown situation. The chain of spread of infection could only break if we follow the rules properly. Strict action will be taken against the ones flouting rules as per the law”, he said.
