In his directives to police officials, Awasthi said, "Crowd should not be allowed to gather during 'Janta Curfew'. However, in case due to any reason, a situation arises that crowd gathers, then an appeal should be made and they should be politely urged to go back to their houses. The police should tell people about the importance of the Janata Curfew."

He also asked officials to ensure that masks, gloves and sanitisers are made available to police personnel on patrolling duty.

The DGP in a statement also said police and health department squads should undertake patrolling.
