Abohar, June 10

With the Rajasthan Government sealing its border for one week amid a rise in Covid cases, hundreds of people were stuck throughout the day at Sadhuwali village in Sriganganagar and Gumjal in Abohar on Wednesday.

The Covid cases in Rajasthan have reached 11,368. The Sriganganagar administration said the movement of vehicles would only be allowed for those having e-passes.

Later in the afternoon, the state government amended its order under which the traffic on interstate roads had to be regulated and borders weren't to be sealed.

Due to it, there was an atmosphere of confusion throughout the day at the Sriganganagar border. The checkpost near Sadhuwali on Sriganganagar-Abohar highway was re-established in the afternoon. Checkposts were also set up on the Sadulshehar-Abohar, Hindumalkot-Panjawa, Hindumalkot-Kotha-Pakki-Bakayanwala roads.

There were many went to Punjab or Rajasthan for just two or three hours. Despite showing the copy of the revised order on WhatsApp, cops at the checkposts didn't let people go. — OC
