City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar on Wednesday visited several checkposts and supervised bandobast arrangements for enforcement of lockdown. Speaking to the media, Anjani Kumar said security was being monitored by a senior rank officer at all the important junctions in Hyderabad during the lockdown.

“We are permitting exempted categories like health workers, medical staff, essential commodities, food item suppliers and milk. International and national travelers can get the digital E-pass from the Hyderabad City Police web portal. More than 700 digital passes have been issued so far,” he said.

Vehicles transporting emergency goods do not need a pass, but need to affix a paper on the windshield of their vehicle stating the details of their goods, he said.

“We have a total of 168 police checkposts in Hyderabad which are open from 10 am to 6 am the next day. In order to implement a full-scale lockdown in the city, one sub-inspector level officer and staff will be on duty at each checkpost, and allow the exempted categories,” the Commissioner said.

Assistants of patients seeking treatment in hospitals too were being allowed on showing relevant doctor prescription and hospital visitor pass, he said, adding that cases were being registered against those who come out unnecessarily and their vehicles also are seized.

Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat also visited police checkposts and supervised the lockdown arrangements in the commissionerate. “Those prohibited as per the government order issued on Tuesday will not be permitted and in case of deviation, cases will be booked and stringent action will be taken,” he said.
