New Delhi, Nov. 22 -- Witnessing a sudden spike in Covid-19 cases, the Gujarat government has decided to impose a night curfew in three cities of the state.

Streets wore a deserted look as night curfew from 9 pm to 6 am was imposed in Ahmedabad, Surat and Rajkot on 21 November.

The announcement came as a 57-hour-long weekend curfew came into effect from 9 pm on Saturday in three states, which will end at 6 am on 23 November.
