The Maharashtra Chief Minister's Office said on March 26 that night curfew will be imposed in the state from the night of March 28. A separate order in this regard will be issued by the Disaster Management and Rehabilitation Department soon, news agency ANI reported.
The night curfew has been imposed in Maharashtra in view of the alarming rise in the number of coronavirus infections being reported daily.
The Chief Minister's Office has also directed all malls to remain close from 8 pm to 7 am.
The directions come after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray chaired a meeting of divisional commissioners, collectors, SPs, and senior doctors of district hospitals to review the COVID-19 situation in the state, earlier in the day.
