“We can think of sealing the boundaries of these four districts; we can think of imposing a curfew in these four districts,” Vij had said in Chandigarh.

Nearly two months ago, the Haryana government had ordered the sealing of borders with the national capital.
The development comes as the number of COVID-19 cases has gone up 25,547 in Haryana with the total death toll at 344.
