Channu village in the Lambi assembly segment has become a hotspot of the Covid-19 cases. As many as five people, including two brothers and a husband-wife, have so far been tested positive in this village. One labourer, who recently returned from Rajasthan, was found infected today.

As a preventive measure, the village has been sealed by the administration.

Bikar Singh, a village resident, said, "We are living in fear. Many people who were in touch with infected persons have been quarantined. Further, some labourers who had returned from Rajasthan are quarantined at the village school. Their test reports are awaited."

Meanwhile, the police arrested a man for allegedly provoking people to run away from a quarantine centre at Doda village. Besides, a resident of Muktsar town too has been arrested for asking people to come on roads.
