A statement from the CMO said that out of over 1.40 lakh cases registered during this period, we withdrew cases involving non-mask wearing and violating social distancing norms.

Also, cases relating to incidents of non-violent nature, which are registered in connection with public protests such as agitations led by Public Service Commission (PSC) job aspirants, will be withdrawn, it said.

The statement said a panel consisting of the Secretary of the Home and Law Departments and the Chief of Police would be constituted to submit a report on the cases to be withdrawn.

Besides CM, high officials and the police chief also participated in the meeting.
