Delhi Police issued WhatsApp numbers for newspaper hawkers so that they can get their movement pass (curfew pass) made from their homes itself.
Delhi Police spokesperson Anil Mittal on Saturday said all the station in-charges have been asked not to stop newspaper hawkers in the morning while distributing newspapers.
He said: “Due to nationwide three-week lockdown the newspaper hawkers were facing trouble while distributing newspapers in the morning. In order to make things smooth for them we have issued two WhatsApp numbers for every district on which the newspaper hawkers can request for the movement pass.”
Mittal said large number of people were coming to get their movement pass from the office of Additional DCP. “Due to crowd the motive of social distancing was failing, therefore, we have asked the respective Additional DCP of every district to verify the documents on WhatsApp and distribute the movement pass,” he added.
