Additional deputy commissioner, Noklak M. Chaitanya Prasad in an order issued on June 3 stated that, as per government of Nagaland SOP order dated June 1, all the persons entering Nagaland would undergo 14 days institutional quarantine at designated centres and after completion would have to undergo 14 days home quarantine.

According to DIPR report, reports have been received by ADC that village councils in Noklak sub-division and town sectors were reluctant and obstructing entry of returnees who are proceeding to respective home quarantine, after release from institutional quarantine centres.

Therefore, all villages in Noklak sub-division and Noklak town sectors have been strictly directed to ensure smooth passage to all such returnees who are proceeding for home quarantine at individual homes.

Further as directed by deputy commissioner Tuensang in notification dated June 1, all the respective village councils or sector unions or the parents of respective person, as the case may be, have been given the responsibility to pick up returnees at the time of release from institutional quarantine centres at Tuensang or Noklak. Therefore, all village councils shall ensure that the respective wards are picked at the time of release from quarantine centres by themselves or parents. Any violation of above order by the village councils or town sector union, would amount not just to violation of guidelines and SOP issued by the government of Nagaland but also violation of Fundamental Right of Free Movement as envisaged in Article 19 of Indian constitution. Therefore, violators would be penalized as per section 51 to 60 of Disaster Management Act 2005 & Section 188 of IPC.
