Manipur Police on Saturday arrested at least 922 people for violating the curfew, ongoing lockdown and for not wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, a senior officer said.

A state-wide curfew was declared in Manipur on March 24 after a woman had tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The nationwide lockdown was imposed from the next day.

The police also seized 740 vehicles for violating the ongoing lockdown and curfew, a statement issued by ADGP (Lawand Order) L Kailun said.

The state police appealed to the people to follow the guidelines issued by the government and stay indoors for their own safety.

Manipur had reported two COVID-19 cases but both the persons have recovered from the coronavirus infection and have been discharged from the hospital.
