Sir,

I am Tabassum a resident of Satya Nagar and want to bring to your attention that some of my neighbours are continuously flouting the quarantine rules even after being tested covid19 positive. Two members of the infected family are moving openly and that too without a mask.

The second floor of House no. 39 in the opposite street is occupied by two college boys living as paying guests. Many outsiders keep visiting these boys. It can be dangerous in this tough time of highly infectious coronavirus disease. The owner of the house is a couple of senior citizens who are worried about their health.

I request immediate intervention from the police so that this disease can be contained at the right time and residents can feel safe and secure.

Yours Sincerely,

Tabassum
