The containment order also made provision for the banning of the sales of petrol in jerry cans, polythene bags, transportation of animals to other parts of the country, restricts the movement of firewood to and from the forest areas, closure of some roads, dismantling of illegal and roadside motor parks, amongst others.
With about 62 days of the order in place, the state government says, appreciable successes have been recorded, with several bandits’ enclaves destroyed, some of them killed, while many of them have been arrested by the joint teams of the security agencies.
He said the people cannot afford to stay out of communication forever.
