ITANAGAR, Mar 28: Despite strict order for state lockdown, youths from different colonies have been seen hanging around the riverside of Senki River, prompting the Senkiview Welfare Society (SWS) to block the entry point of the colony on Saturday.
Speaking to this daily, general secretary of the SWS Kalley Cheda said that since day one of state lockdown to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, many youths and teenagers in groups have been seen alongside the rivers drinking and taking bath.
“Despite, repeated requests they are time and again coming to the colony. Therefore to check the flow of such groups, the committee today constructed a gate so that they don’t enter the colony,” he said.
He said that the colony being in the extreme corner of the main town, makes it easy for the youths from the nearby colonies to enter the colony to hang around the river for various reasons.
Meanwhile, the Senkiview Youth Association (SYA) General Secretary Sono Tabri requested the people of Itanagar to stay in home quarantine for the greater interest of the state. 
The district administration has already banned any kind of fishing, hunting, celebrations including bathing in the river side.
He said if anyone is found violating the order, the committee will directly hand over to the police.
“We don’t have any personal grudge or enmity against anyone but in this situation when the entire country is fighting against the invisible enemy, we don’t want any individual from the colony and my family to be infected,” he added.
