MHA writes to Chief Secretaries
By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Mar 23: Noting that people from the North East have been facing harassment after the occurrence of COVID-19 in the country, the Ministry of Home Affairs, North East Division has written to Chief Secretaries and DGPs of all States and Union Territories asking them to sensitise all enforcing agencies in their respective States and Union Territories and take appropriate action when such cases of harassment are reported.
There have been cases where people from the North East including athletes and sports persons have been harassed by linking them to COVID-19. This is racially discriminatory, inconvenient and painful to them, said the MHA’s missive.
