કોરોનાની ગંભીરતાને સમજ્યા વગર કામ વિના ફરવા નીકળતા અને સ્થાનિક રહીશોને ઇન્ફેકશનના ખતરામાં નાખનારા તત્વો પર સકંજો કસવા ગુજરાત પોલીસ લેશે કડક પગલાં.

DGP Shivanand Jha said it has come to the notice of the police that many people have not taken the lockdown seriously and are seen playing cricket in common plots and society campuses. Also, there are people who are loitering on the street and giving false reasons to the police, he added. The top cop said such people should be rest assured that action will be taken against them as well.
