The city police decided to intensify implementation of lockdown more effectively from Tuesday. People cannot move from one sector of a police station to another. They need e-registration to move from one police station limits to another police station limits in the permitted time — 6 am-10 am

On the orders of City Police Commissioner Shankar Jiwal, the city police has made arrangements to tighten restrictions further with establishing vehicle check points on the borders in 13 places of 12 police districts in the city. Barricades will be established on roads at sector wise in every police station. Arrangements have been made for the public to buy vegetables, essentials and food within the sector where they live. They will be allowed to do so in the permitted hours between 6 a.m to 10 am as per guidelines of government.

Besides, 153 vehicle checking points have been established connecting all important junctions and covering all police limits. People who move on roads beyond the permitted hours should have e-registration. Otherwise, appropriate legal action will be taken against those who do not have such e-registration and their vehicles will be seized, said the city police.
