Nagpur: While Administration and the city police are ensuring every efforts to break the transmission of novel Corona Virus (Covid-19) among the Nagpurians, some quarantined citizen are found to be roaming around, visiting families and friends posing severe threat to others and taking norms for granted. However, enough is enough, says Dr. Nilesh Bharne, Additional Commissioner (Crime) and informed Nagpur Today that such stubbornness will be rewarded with punishment.

“The city has around 500 quarantined personnel on record till date. For the benefits of themselves and the society, they have been advised to self quarantined for at least 14 days, to contain the outbreak of novel Corona Virus. However, we were amused to find such person roaming around, hanging out with family and friends. Such behavior not only pose threat to them but the society itself,” said Bharne.

“If any suspects of Covid-19 or self quarantined personnel found violating norms set by the District Administration, he/she will be booked under Sections 188 of the IPC,” noted Additional Commissioner.
