Blocking step: FIR 'home delivery' in Muzaffarnagar from UP

MUZAFFARNAGAR: As some people do not follow the 21-day national blockade called to combat the spread, the police have decided to begin home delivery of FIRs against those who violate government orders.

Muzaffarnagar Senior Police Superintendent Abhishek Yadav announced the incident in the city and asked people to stay home to cut off the Covid-19 transmission.

We have been drawing all of you for the last seven days of the night, but many of you still go out and wander in groups. We have decided to deliver FIR to their homes, if they are wandering the streets for no reason, he said.

Yadav said the police will videotape people moving on the streets and identify their people.

According to police sources, the decision aims to send a clear message to people to follow government instructions in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic across the country.

On Friday, the total number of patients in India increased to 2,301 with 56 deaths and 156 healed.
