BHUBANESWAR :  In wake of rampant violation of Covid-19 norms during relaxation of lockdown between 6 am and 12 noon, the Commissionerate Police on Tuesday warned that checking and patrolling will be intensified in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack and stringent action taken against offenders. 

Police Commissioner, Saumendra Kumar Priyadarshi said some people are venturing out of their houses even if they do not have any essential work in the morning. “We have noticed that between 6 am and 12 noon, there is an increase in movement of vehicles on the roads in the cities as some people are not following the guidelines” he said.
