Daijiworld Media Network – Beltangady (DV/MS)

Beltangady, Jun 20: With lockdown still in place and weekend curfew on, police have increased inspection of vehicles at district borders and other places to ensure that people do not travel unnecessarily.

On the intervening night between Saturday June 19 and Sunday June 20, police inspected several vehicles at Gundya checkpost amidst reports that many tourists from other districts were arriving into Dakshina Kannada without valid reason.

Several of the passengers in these cars allegedly said they were coming to Mangaluru for medical reasons, however, it was found that they were actually visiting Dharmasthala, police sources said.

The cops sent back 69 vehicles that were proceeding towards Dharmasthala temple between midnight and 3 am.

Security has been increased at all district borders and also on Charmady ghat as per the instructions of the DC. Strict vehicle checking is in progress at Ujire too.

From the past two to three days devotees in large numbers have been arriving from others districts to visit the holy places of Dharmasthala and Subramanya. In the wake of this information, deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V has given strict orders to the police department to confiscate such vehicles.

In addition, the DC has also ordered to install additional checkposts at Charmady and Periyashanthi to inspect the vehicles arriving into the district.

    Yes Mr. Subhash. "Bangalore & Kasaragod are the biggest spreaders of covid in our region the reason why cases are not going down." Native people of DK and Udupi are staying inside thier homes. Onely the people of Kerala and Bengaluru are seen on roads.!!! Mr. Subhash, you are a big joker.

    Covid doesn't have any regions or area..... People have to work and look their family hence migration do happen because govt is doing unlock based on positive rate. Hence whose working and employer might force to come to district to work. Will you or govt help ? No one can question any Indian citizen who is travelling within India.

    Send back only poor people's and strict rules applies only for poor. How ministers travelling to Delhi ? How bjp head came to Bangalore when there was strict lock down. We need to make better India like how USSR collapsed and Russia emerged.
