Even as police across the country are grappling with the issue of dealing with lockdown regulation violators, police in the city have been quite innovative when it comes to punishing local violators.
On Saturday, police at the Chowk Police Station in the city took around 50 COVID - 19 lockdown violators through a circuit of yoga sessions, physical workouts and oath - taking ceremonies
With people engrossed in breathing exercises, the scene near the Cotton MarketA resembled a yoga centre.
The only indication to say it is not a routine yoga session, was the presence of policemen prodding the participants to do the exercise properly.
The initiative to discourage lockdown violators in this novel way was taken by Shakeel Angadi, Circle Inspector at the Chowk Police Station.
The only commonality between participants and police personnel, were the COVID - 19 masks across their faces.
