Defying Lockdown, Hundreds of People Participate in Festival in COVID-19 Hotspot Kalaburagi

At a time when the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has issued guidelines to strictly adhere to social distancing norms during lockdown, people in large numbers on Thursday participated in a religious festival in Chitapur, Kalaburagi district, which was declared as one of COVID-19 hotspots of the country. 

However, a case under Sections 188, 143, 269 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered in this regard against the temple management and those who gathered at the temple site for the chariot festival.

Despite the order from the police not to hold the festival, people in large number gathered and celebrated the festival.
