Capital SP Tumme Amo on Tuesday informed that the police have started taking action against those who flout the lockdown order.
“We have arranged spaces in Itanagar and Naharlagun to park the seized vehicles. Those roaming around without any valid reasons will have to face the music now,” Amo said.
The SP informed that “strong action” has been taken
in a case involving a motorist who misbehaved with the police on Monday.
He said, however, that the situation is improving and vast majority of the residents are supporting the efforts of the administration.
“There will be some vehicles on the road because police, magistrate, medical, bank and delivery vehicles are moving around. But overall the things have improved much,” the SP said.
On Tuesday morning, IGPs Chukhu Apa and Apur Bitin visited various check posts in the capital region and reviewed the status of the lockdown measures.
