Leh, June 07: Despite the new SOPs and guidelines issued by the District Administration, Leh, to gradually unlock the Covid-19 restrictions in the district, some defaulters were found violating the new SOPs/guidelines.
Vehicles were plying on the road without adhering to the odd-even scheme implemented by the Administration during the surveillance at major checkpoints. UT Traffic Police issued challans/fine to the defaulters with strict warnings not to repeat the offence.
