A Karachi court denied a group of traders bail in a case made against them for violating the lockdown.
The District South justice magistrate sent six traders to jail for 14 days on judicial remand during a hearing on Thursday.
They were arrested for opening their markets without permission. One of the men who was arrested is a representative of the traders.
They appeared in court on Monday asking for bail but were denied their applications. The traders were accused of violating lockdowns, tortures and provocations.
The lockdown was placed on March 23 across the province after coronavirus outbreak. The government hopes to contain the virus by making sure people stay home.
However, traders and entrepreneurs want to open up markets, since they face losses. The Sindh government has reopened a number of factories and is slowly encouraging other companies to do so. Before doing so, it says that it needs Centre’s approval.
