Allu Arjuns birthday: Police book actors fans for violating COVID SOPs

Hyderabad: The city police have booked fans of Tollywood star Allu Arjun for violating Covid 19 SOPs and gathering in big numbers to celebrate actor's birthday.

According to police, a large number of fans arrived near the actor's residence on Road no 68 at Jubilee Hills on Wednesday night. As the clock struck 12, they shouted slogans and burst crackers. The celebrations went for an hour.

Due to the loud noise from the crackers, neighbors and other residents in the locality called up Dial 100. Police said several people from the locality complained about the loud noise.

However, since nobody gave a written complaint, police took a suo moto notice and registered a case under section 290(Punishment for public nuisance in cases not otherwise provided for), 336(endangering other person life), and 188(Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC at Jubilee Hills Police Station.

TS police to strictly enforce mandatory mask rule across state

In view of the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the state, the Telangana police have decided to strictly implement the rule relating to wearing of masks across the state in all public places with immediate effect.

A meeting with all commissioners of police, district superintendents of police, and all other officers up to the rank of SHOs was held through video conference on 9 April. Range DIsG, zonal IsGP and ADG (law and order) participated in the meeting.

Police officers across the state have been directed to coordinate with all stakeholders in the local communities, including resident's welfare associations and officials at the village and ward level, and ensure strict implementation of the rule relating to mandatory wearing of masks in public places. They have been directed to involve all self-help groups across the state in securing voluntary compliance of the local communities.

Strict enforcement measures, including prosecuting repeat offenders by registering specific cases, will be undertaken all over the state, the Telangana director-general of police said in a statement. Meanwhile, owners of various commercial establishments where gatherings are likely to take place, including malls, wine shops, pubs, hotels, restaurants, kirana shops, and petrol pumps have been directed not to allow the entry of people without masks. They have also been directed to display appropriate signages accordingly in their establishments at prominent places and ensure the same as required under the National Disaster Management Act.

The director-general of police also requested the public to cooperate with the police department in ensuring 100 per cent compliance of norms relating to wearing of masks and maintaining social distance to help contain the spread of coronavirus.
