Fatehgarh Sahib, August 10, 2020: Fatehgarh Sahib police have started implementing the new guidelines of the state government by punishing the COVID guideline violators particularly those who were not wearing masks were forced to stand along the roadside for an hour and distributed then masks.
Harpal Singh SP (Investigation) said that the new guidelines of the government are being implemented in letter and spirit. He said that instead of imposing fines those who are roaming without masks are being taken to task and they are punished for an hour to stand in a public place, so that the entire passerby may notice the punishment and start coming out by wearing masks. He said that the police also provided them with masks and took the promise that in future they will not come out without masks. He said if we can save our society and family just by wearing masks and maintain social distance to control the spread of COVID, we must follow it as we have social responsibility also.
He said that the police are working round the clock and guarding all nakas just to save the people from the pandemic by taking risk to their own life and the people should also co-operate and follow all the directions.
