As soon as the country gets relief from the second wave of Corona, there are long queues of tourists in the hill states. Seeing the huge gathering at tourist places in Uttarakhand, the state government made it a rule that the visiting tourists will have to show the negative report of the corona test, but people are not agreeing.
In the hobby of traveling, people are now making fake reports of Korena. Uttarakhand Police on Thursday arrested 13 such tourists, who were entering the state with fake corona reports. A case has been registered against them under the Epidemic Act.
13 people found in two vehicles
After making the negative report of the corona test mandatory by the government, the teams of the Special Operation Group check the reports of tourists coming to the state. During checking at Clement Town in the state, the police suspected tourists in two vehicles. When I saw the report, it turned out to be fake. Out of this, one vehicle was from Ghaziabad, in which 10 people were aboard. The second vehicle was from Bihar, in which there were 3 people. The police arrested everyone.
Till now more than 100 fake reports have been received
According to the police, more than 100 people have been caught with fake reports so far. In fact, the state government had relaxed the restrictions on coming to the state a few days ago, since then tourist places like Mussoorie and Nainital have started increasing the crowd. Although the corona curfew will remain in force till July 20, the state government has relaxed many rules to resume economic activities.

4000 vehicles returned over the weekend
According to the Uttarakhand Police Headquarters, it is mandatory for tourists coming to the state to have a negative corona report and booking in advance in the hotel. Over the past weekend, around 4000 tourists in vehicles were turned back from Mussoorie and Nainital due to non-compliance with these standards.
Modi had expressed his objection to the crowd gathering at the hill stations
Two days ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the Chief Ministers of the northeastern states. During this, he had said, ‘Some people speak with tight chest that they want to enjoy before the third wave arrives. People have to understand that the third wave will not come on its own. The question must be how to stop it? How to follow protocol? Corona does not come on its own, if someone goes and brings it, it comes. If we take precautions, then only we will be able to stop it.
