Dehradun: Home-selling quarantine agents
Many agents of the home-quarantined Niranjanpur Mandi are secretly selling fruits and vegetables. The artisans have chosen different places to load-unload fruits and vegetables. At the same time, there are many agents who are home quarantine themselves but they have kept their staff on business.
Last week, the administration closed Niranjanpur Mandi after Corona positive cases increased. Then all the artisans were asked to quarantine themselves. Apart from this, their staff and laborers were also quarantined. But instead of being a quarantine, many agents are secretly selling fruits and vegetables.
These agents are constantly asking for fruits and vegetables and selling them to retail traders. For this, someone has chosen a wide space on the roadside, while some are working in an empty plot. Despite being quarantined, selling their fruits and vegetables also poses a risk of infection.
People who have been home quarantined should stay at home following the rules. Stringent action is being taken against those who violate the rules.
