Kohima, May 15 (EMN):
Following the imposition of state-wide lockdown to curb the transmission of Covid-19, streets and colony roads in the state capital wore a deserted look on Saturday.  

Police personnel were seen patrolling the streets while colony youth organisations and panchayats on the other hand kept an eye over their respective localities to ensure restrictions weren’t violated except those exempted from the purview of the lockdown.

Meanwhile, district police manning the streets informed Eastern Mirror that denizens in the state capital had been co-operative as flouting of Covid-19 norms had not been reported till late night.

A police officer also informed that they didn’t encounter any defaulters till noon, while PRO of Kohima Police also said that response from the public has been “positive” so far.

It was also informed that police personnel were being deployed on the streets in roster system.

Meanwhile, deputy commissioner of Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie had notified that shops selling essential commodities, grocery stores etc., within the colonies would be allowed to open only on alternate days during the lockdown. 

According to the order, all shops and business establishments located along national highway including the stretch of road from PR Hill to Jail colony junction and market areas like BOC, Kezieke, High School junction, etc. would remain closed “without any exception” on all days during the lockdown period.
