GOA: Even as the three-day lockdown in the state ends on Monday, the state government on Sunday extended it by five days for Mormugao taluka, where it will end at 6am on Friday. The night curfew (8pm-6am), however, will be in force for the rest of Goa till August 10.
South Goa collector Ajit Roy on Sunday evening issued an order under Section 144 of CRPC restraining the movement of people and imposing other restrictions in Mormugao. Thus, all shops (except those selling essentials), restaurants, public transport, liquor stores, malls, religious places and sports complexes will remain closed.
The government’s three-day curfew received a largely positive response from the public, with most people remaining indoors. Shops too, remained shut, and otherwise bustling streets wore a deserted look.
