Jaipur: Amid the rising cases of Covid-19 in the state, the Ashok Gehlot led Rajasthan Government on Friday imposed night curfew in 10 cities- Ajmer, Alwar, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Udaipur and Abu Road till April 30.

While nine cities -- Ajmer, Alwar, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota and Abu Road will have restrictions from 8 pm to 6 am, night curfew in Udaipur will be imposed from 6 pm to 6 am.

While markets in nine cities will close by 7 pm, those in Udaipur will be shut by 5 pm. Earlier, the night curfew timing was from 10 pm to 6 am and it was till April 19.

Faced with a surge in Covid-19 cases, Jodhpur Police Commissioner, J Mohan on April 7 said that challans will be sent to the homes of those who flout Covid-19 norms.

Speaking to ANI, Mohan said, "Some people misbehave with cops or run away when being penalised for violating Covid-19 guidelines. CCTV cameras will be used to check those who roam around without masks or flout social distancing. Challans will be sent to their homes."

On April 7, the Rajasthan government has written to the Centre about the shortage of Covid-19 vaccines and has sought 30 lakh doses to continue with the inoculation drive.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has said: "The present stock of vaccines in Rajasthan will finish in the next two days."

Many state governments have recently complained of vaccine shortage to the Union government and have asked it to send more vaccines to keep up the vaccination drive.

The Centre has, however, refuted the claim of the vaccine shortage.
