Family was walking to UP due to inability to pay for rented accommodation
The police came to the rescue of a family walking from Jamalpur area in Haridwar district to Hamirpur in Uttar Pradesh due to the landlord pressurising them to pay the rent. On Sunday evening inspector Manoj Kumar Menwal and other police personnel were on duty at the COER intersection in Roorkee when they saw a husband and wife with three children walking on the road. On inquiry, it was found that the family was walking to Hamirpur. The man said that he was not unable to earn due to the lockdown and his landlord had been pressurising him to pay the rent. Due to this, the family had to leave their rented accommodation and walk towards their native place in Uttar Pradesh. After learning that they had not eaten anything since morning, the police first fed the family of five.
The police then drove the family to their rented accommodation in Jamalpur area. There, with the help of the Jamalpur gas plant police post in-charge Satyendra Singh Negi, the family was dropped at their rented accommodation. The police also explained to their landlord and other landlords in the neighbourhood that they cannot force any tenant to pay rent or vacate right now. It is pertinent to mention here that later on Sunday, orders were also received from the Union Home ministry directing the state governments to ensure that landlords do not take rent from their tenants for a period of one month considering the present situation.
