    Security Beefed At Inter-District, Inter-State Check Posts In Hailakandi

    Security beefed up with medical teams deployed at inter-district, inter-state check posts in Hailakandi

    In view of opening up of inter-state borders of Assam with the other Northeastern States, the Hailakandi police administration tightened security at the inter-state and inter-district border checkpoints. 

    Hailakandi Superintendent of Police, Pabindra Kumar Nath said the inter-state and inter-district border checkpoints have been reactivated since May 3rd, 2020 with the deployment of medical surveillance teams following opening up of the inter-state borders of Assam with neighbouring states for movement of people stuck due to the lockdown. 

    Police personnel and medical teams have been deployed at Katakhal and at Thundapur under Panchgram Police Station bordering Cachar and Karimganj districts, at Bilaipur-Dholcherra BoP, Bandukmara and Ramnathpur check posts along Assam-Mizoram inter-state border. 

    Nath said that 20 arrests have been made and 23 vehicles seized for lockdown violations on May 2nd, 2020. Rs 4,000 has been realised by way of fines. 

    “All must be aware of the fact that maintaining social distancing and avoiding gatherings are a must under COVID-19 guidelines. Apart from this, Section 144 CrPC that prohibits the assembling of five or more persons is in force in the district,” Nath said. 

    He also urged the people to adhere to the lockdown guidelines and to maintain social distancing to break the novel coronavirus chain. 

    He warned that police would have to resort to punitive measures to enforce the lockdown keeping in view the grave threat the dreaded virus poses to the entire mankind.

    805 persons have come back home from different parts of the state in the wake of inter-district movement since April 25th, 2020. 

    The health authorities here have put 380 persons under home quarantine for 28 days and the process is on to quarantine the remaining persons.
