“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.

Sajjanar warns lockdown violators of strict action

To ensure strict and effective implementation of the lockdown, Cyberabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar instructed the police to be on the field round-the-clock while taking all needed precautions. On the first day of the lockdown imposed by the State government to contain the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, Sajjanar on Wednesday made surprise visits at Hitec City, JNTU, Kukatpally Y Junction, Jeedimetla and Balanagar X Roads to supervise the arrangements.

The Commissioner urged the people to observe discipline and stay home during the 10-day lockdown. “The lockdown is for our safety. I request the people to co-operate the same way they had done during the lockdown last year,” he said. In Cyberabad police limits, more than 100 checkposts were being jointly operated by the law and order police and Traffic police and monitored by the senior police officials.

Any violations of the lockdown restrictions would result in prosecution under Sections 51 to 60 of Disaster Management Act, 2005 and Section 188 of IPC. A fine of Rs 1,000 would be imposed for not wearing face mask, he said and instructed people to follow safety measures such as physical distancing and use of sanitisers.

Sajjanar during the inspections was accompanied by Traffic DCP SM Vijay Kumar, Balanagar DCP PV Padmaja, Madhapur DCP Venkateshwarlu, SOT DCP G. Sundeep, CAR ADCP Manikraj, Kukatpally ACP Surender Rao, Madhapur ACP Raghunandan Rao, inspectors and other police personnel.
