"Since Bharatpur borders are connected with UP, there are people entering Bharatpur from the UP villages using kaccha roads illegally by motor bikes. It is difficult to check such movement and hence have ordered for the same," he said.

The minister also said that the COVID-19 cases in Bharatpur are increasing due to illegal commuting of people from Agra. He instructed officials to install CCTV cameras at entry points of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

Bharatpur till Tuesday morning registered 115 COVID-19 cases and two deaths. One positive was registered on Tuesday as well, said Additional Chief Secretary, Health Rohit Kumar Singh.
