“The Commissionerate Police have not provided the pass to anyone for their movement during the lockdown and shutdown. But they allow the movement of the people on the basis of their identity cards,” Priyadarshi said.
“But as it is found that some people are freely moving in the cities by misusing their identity cards, we will ask the organizations concerned to submit a detailed list of the employees whom they have asked to work in their respective offices. The organizations will submit the list of the employees in the office of the DCP. Apart from this, the organizations will have to provide a letter of authorization along with the identity cards to their employees who will show them to the police,” he added.
