Gauhati HC orders Assam Police to strictly enforce COVID rules

The Gauhati High Court on Thursday asked Assam Police to strictly enforce wearing masks and other COVID-19 Rules in a hearing into a Public interest litigation or PIL that said those violating Rules were not being stopped effectively across the State.

Referring to an order issued by the State Health and Family Welfare Department on May 8 this year, the Chief Justice asked the District Heads of Police, Deputy Superintendents of Police and Officers-in-Charge of the Police Stations to be proactive on the streets. It asked them to follow rules that say those not wearing any face-covering should be fined Rs 500 on the first occasion and Rs 1,000 for subsequent offences.
