    Assam-Manipur border district imposed Total Lockdown

    Locals suspected that the possible reason behind the surge in COVID 19 infections in the district was because of the inter-state movement between Jiribam and Assam’s Silchar town

    Guwahati: Following the surge in COVID 19 cases in the state, the district of Jiribam in Manipur bordering Assam has been put under a curfew from Sunday.

    Jiribam district administration said that a complete lockdown in the district was declared by an order of state chief secretary L Suresh Babu who is also the chairperson of State Executive Committee of the State Disaster Management Authority.

    Residents of the district were prohibited to move out of their respective homes under section 2 of the CrPC 144.

    On Monday, the roads in the district remained deserted and shops remained closed.

    “So far the total curfew will be effective till July 15 or until further order,” said the order issued by district magistrate W Malemnganba Chenglei stated.  However, inter-state goods carrying vehicles will be allowed to pass the Jiribam gate.

    Earlier, the district magistrate had declared 22 locations of the district including a police station at the district headquarters as containment zones.

    The lockdown order came immediately after 28 policemen were detected COVID-19 positive in Jiribam triggering fears of community transmission in the district.

    Locals suspected that the possible reason behind the surge in COVID 19 infections in the district was because of the inter-state movement of many people between Jiribam and Assam’s Silchar town, a COVID-19 red zone.
