Police officials and the government has been continuously urging citizens to remain indoors and abide by the nation-wide lockdown as a safety measure from the coronavirus. Confirmed cases of the coronavirus have exceeded a thousand in India and now more than ever, it is crucial for us to practice social-distancing and self-quarantine. However, some people just don’t get it.
Which is why certain police officials were forced to adopt other means to punish those violating the lockdown. According to a report by India Today, a video of police inspectors doing aarti on violators and showering them with flowers to allegedly embarrass them has gone viral on the internet. While they were doing so, ‘Aaiye Aapka Intezaar Tha’ plays on the background!
Have a look at the video here:
