» This remarks made and held today based on newspaper reports that Covid patients were stopped at inter state borders for treatment to Hyderabad.

» Chief Justice Hima Kohli said, How can you do this? You are stopping people from entering without any official order and without letting the public know?

» Even if the state government want to impose any restrictions they should inform in advance and issue circular to the public.

» The court also said that until issuing circular by state government, Telangana police shall not prevent any ambulance carrying Covid patients from one state to another state for medical treatment.

» She further stated that the State should not impose any conditions to ill patients who are transported for medical treatments. Justice Reddy also contented the same – ‘ You cannot stop people from entering Telangana’

» He also suggested to states to issue an advertisement in neighbouring states for shortage of medical facilities.
