Those violating home quarantine to face legal action, warns DGP
The Uttarakhand director general of police Anil Kumar Raturi has warned that legal action will be taken against returning migrants who do not observe the 14 day home quarantine condition after their return to the state. The DGP has also asked citizens to inform the police in case they find any person not observing the home quarantine as directed to prevent the further spread of Covid-19 in the state.
Raturi said that people across the nation and state are facing difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The State administration is facilitating the return of the migrants from Uttarakhand back to their native state. He said, “A large number of migrants have already been brought back to the state and have reached their villages and cities. One of the important points of this procedure is that those returning have to remain under mandatory home quarantine for 14 days so that the contagion does not spread. However, anyone found acting irresponsibly and violating the quarantine by coming out will face legal action under the Disaster Management Act.” The DGP also appealed the general public to inform the police on 112 with details in case they know of anyone violating home quarantine. Raturi reiterated that in this difficult time, the administration wants to ensure the good health of the public in the state and the nation. Hence, the mandatory home quarantine must be observed properly by all those returning to the state, failing which appropriate action will be taken as per the law.
