Srinagar, Jul 23: In view of the possible third wave of Novel Coronavirus, district administration Srinagar on Friday deputed enforcement squads accompanied by the magistrates at different locations in the city to check on the people found violating the Covid-19 Sops and not adhering to appropriate behavior. 

An official from the Srinagar Administration said that they have clear instructions from the DDMA Srinagar that the Covid-19 Sop violations will not be tolerated in any case, and those found violating the Covid appropriate behaviour may have to face FIR under relevant laws.

Notably, earlier in the day the DDMA Srinagar had also said that they are going to act tough on Covid protocol violators and those found not wearing masks in public places may have to face FIR.

A top official stated that despite enforcement squads being established, it is impossible to chase down every individual and force them to wear the mask.

“Few people are habitual offenders, and they only wear masks when the enforcement team instructs them to, as a result, in order to protect public health in general, we are taking stricter disciplinary action against those offenders,” he said.

Deputy Commissioner Srinagar in a press briefing recently said that not wearing a mask despite going through first and second waves is suicidal.
