Lockdown violators to be punished in Rajasthan


Coming out with a unique way of ‘engaging’ those defying the lockdown orders amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the district administration in Rajasthan’s Jhunjhunu area has decided to send such violators to the quarantine wards to take care of coronavirus patients.SDM Nawalgarh, Murari Lal Sharma also requested people to click photographs of those roaming on roads without any reason and send the pictures to the district authorities.

Such people will be pushed into service in the quarantine wards set up at JJT University and Singhania University, the official said.The official also passed on a message on social media to inform people about the decision. ‘This is not a joke as we will implement it from Sunday as there is a huge requirement for people to serve COVID-19 patients. It will be a winning situation as Nawalgarh will get rid of such people (on the roads), and patients will also get the benefit,’ says the order. The state has reported 54 cases of the deadly disease as of now.
