Kamal Pant says from Monday onwards, people out on roads sans valid reason will be arrested
City police commissioner Kamal Pant has warned that from Monday onwards, people who are out on the roads without any specific reason will be arrested. The Karnataka government has imposed stricter curbs on people’s movement on roads as part of the fortnight-long curfew from from 6 am on Monday, May 10 to 6 am on May 24.
Addressing the media on Saturday, Pant said no one will be spared if they are found on the streets without a valid reason. “We have given enough warnings and this time we will arrest them,” Pant warned.
