Only essential service to operate in Kashmir


Srinagar, Mar 22 (KINS): The administration has decided to continue lock down in most of the district here in kashmir.

The sources earlier in the day had told KINS that the LG Murmu led administration was seriously deliberating whether to extend the lockdown in the larger interests of people of J&K as done by South Korea where mortality rate decreased considerably as people there went into hibernation.

“Yes, there are deliberations going on what steps need to be further taken. The Government is weighing options and one of the suggestions is to prolong the lockdown for a week or fortnight,” an official close to LG Murmu said.

Sources said that it has been decided to continue lock down in Srinagar and other parts of the valley and only the essential services to be allowed to operate.

On Sunday, on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, “Janata Curfew” was observed across India including J&K. However, curbs also remained in places in Srinagar and elsewhere to ensure curfew remains enforced. Pertinently, in Kashmir, there is only one positive case of Covid-19, who had a history of travel to Saudi Arabia even as official figures suggest that over 4000 are under surveillance at various places across J&K.(KINS)
