Indore police punish lockdown evaders with sit-ups


Indore (Madhya Pradesh) : Police in Indore have found a variety of ways to publicly punish people flouting coronavirus lockdown — making them do squats, sit-ups and push-ups in the street.

Baton-wielding police thrashed people who were on two-wheelers for not abiding quarantine rules and stepping outside without a valid reason.

On Tuesday, policeman in groups inspected multiple areas of the city and caught defaulters who were strolling on the streets.
Some of the men were made to do push ups for few minutes.
