BARPETA: The nationwide lockdown brought life to a standstill in Barpeta. Most of the people remained at home but some people have still not quite understood the threat posed by the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Superintendent of Police Dr Robin Kumar inspected various places. In some places of the district like Howly town, Barpeta Road, Sarbhog, Pathsala, Bhabanipur and Sarthebari, people who tried to come out of their homes for no valid reason were prevented from doing so. In some places of Howly, the villagers blocked roads to prevent the entry of people.
