Calcutta: More than 400 bookings for violating the nighttime curfew restriction set by the WB government


More than 400 drivers and motorcyclists were prosecuted in Calcutta between midnight and 5 a.m. Monday when the West Bengal government imposed a nighttime curfew. During the nighttime curfew, only emergency vehicles are allowed to circulate. Just an hour after the West Bengal government issued the notification, some 40 nakas (checkpoints) that had been set up from 11 p.m. to arrest drunk drivers were replaced with nakas from night restriction. Between 12 p.m. and 5 a.m., 403 drivers and cyclists were charged.

Most violations were reported by traffic officers in East and Ultadanga, accounting for more than half of the charges. According to The Times of India, the Eastern Guard charged 147 motorists, while the Ultadanga guard arrested 80 others. At the same time, 347 people were arrested by division officers on Sunday for breaking the rules.

Guards at Garia and DH Road, who handle traffic from Kolkata to South 24 Parganas, also reported a number of violations. At 10 p.m. on Monday, inspections began. Only necessary services would be permitted in the state between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., according to Chief Secretary HK Dwivedi, who announced the restrictions at a press conference on Sunday.

Kolkata contributed half of the daily new cases, with 4,759 people testing positive in the past 24 hours, according to the state. Between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., only emergency services will be allowed to operate, with shopping malls, cinemas and restaurants being allowed to operate at 50% of their capacity until 10 p.m. West Bengal recorded 9,073 cases on Tuesday, bringing the state’s positive rate to 18.96. %.
