The Ravi river that divides the boundaries of Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab, has turned out to be a big challenge for the administration in the Union Territory to bar the illegal entry of stranded people into Kathua, Jammu.
More than fifty people who crossed through the Ravi were detained and later sent to the quarantine home by the police after being informed by locals, reported The Tribune.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, J-K has sealed the borders — forcing many stranded people to take the river route to enter in the UT. They are taking the river route to avoid the mandatory quarantine.
On Wednesday, about twelve people who managed to reach the national highway after crossing the river were caught by the police on the information of locals. However, some persons returned back after some locals tried to shoot their videos.
