Around 7500 people are affected by the curfew in areas falling under 3 police stations which include Pratapnagar police station area, Hiranmagri police station area and Sukher police station area. Curfew until 12th May has been imposed after a nurse and one RAC jawan were found corona positive.
Late night on Tuesday curfew was imposed in the areas falling under the above mentioned police stations. This has affected around 7500 people living in these areas. The good side of this is that people did not need any convincing by police or by administration, instead they themselves followed a complete lockdown in their homes.
All this because administration made prior arrangements to keep the people comfortable for providing the essentials. Home delivery of milk and other essentials was arranged.
The areas falling in curfew zone are:
Pratapnagar-Zinc Complex at Jharnon ki sarai, Shrinath colony, Amrit Nagar, Shiv Nagar and Jamna Nagar. The population in these areas is around 2000.
Hiranmagri-Subcity Centre area- Nim Chowk, Pipli Chowk, Avari Mata kachchi basti area, Mogiya basti and Regar basti.(3000 people)
Sukher-Areas under New Bhupalpura-Panna Vihar, Shriji Kunj, Khara Kuan, DP Singh lane (2500 people).
