However, Lahore police higher officials are also stiffening the measures within the police protect them.
But three policemen had performed security duties during Tableeghi Ijtima or preaching congregation of Deobandi preaching party.
Unfortunately, the government and the organizers of the congregation put lives of millions of Pakistanis at stake by gathering tens of thousands at the congregation.
Even foreigners participated in the congregation but the government had not banned the congregation in view of Coronavirus pandemic threat.
Due to government’s negligence, and because of Deobandi preachers’ stubbornness, people from across the country and abroad rallied at Raiwind Lahore.
Now government has found hundreds of the participants infected with Coronavirus after test reports.
They have transmitted it to many others across Pakistan.
Earlier, in Bhakkar district of Punjab, the administration shifted 120 such Deobandi preachers at quarantine centre but now only 41 stay there.
Remaining 79 have fled. People say that they are hiding in the surroundings because of lack of public transport facilities due to lockdown.
These Tableeghi Jamaat preachers belong to other districts of Punjab and Sindh province.
