Srinagar, April 16 (IANS) While shocking visuals of traffic rush emerged on Wednesday, the most of Jammu is following the lockdown in letter and spirit with women helping at some places.
At Chatha, 10 kilometres from Jammu, women in small groups have been out on the roads for many days helping in enforcing the lockdown.
With sticks in their hands they are stopping the occasional violators and politely turning them back.

“The women have come together to contribute our bit, the administration and police are doing their job, we must also help and come together to deal with this disease and fight the war so that it is defeated,” said a woman guarding a road.
