Lockdown likely for another week, police could be given magistracy power

The government is mulling to extend the ongoing lockdown by another week as the authorities fear that the deadly Indian variant of Covid-19 may worsen the pandemic situation. 

This time, the police will be given magistracy power to ensure that people wear masks and maintain hygiene rules.

State minister for public administration Farhad Hossain confirmed the matter to media saying a gazette notification could be issued in this regard after Eid.

Earlier, the ongoing restriction on movement and public transport was extended till May 16.
