24 people busted for defying lockdown in Karachi

Karachi (HRNW) Police have taken into custody 90 people for violating the lockdown on Monday. Cases were registered against 24 people for coming out of their homes for “no valid reasons”.

Many people, however, have claimed that they left their houses for some purpose but the policemen didn’t listen to them.

“I had left my house to get a medicine from a store near my house,” a man told Local TV. “The police arrested me before I could even go to the store.” The man has been taken into custody by the Paposh Nagar police.

A married couple, who live in DHA, said that the Darakhshan police arrested their driver who was going to drop groceries at their other domestic helper’s house. “The police aren’t listening to doing anything to help him,” the woman added.

The Sindh government has imposed a lockdown across the province in an attempt to stem the spread of coronavirus.
