Lockdown Overview

The Covid-19 has turned the whole enjoyment into a quarantine moment. Moreover, India has been imposing the nationwide lockdown now for over a month and there might be a genuine reason for that. We need to flatten the curve of the spread of the pandemic, we can only do this through lockdown. Moreover, the violation of the lockdown rules can even get you arrested and here we have a perfect example of that.

A youth of New Shanti Nagar, Chattisgarh was arrested by the police after he broke the lockdown rules.

Who is this youngster that drove his BMW in night during the lockdown

This youngster named Abhinay Soni is from Chattisgarh. Not only was he driving a luxury car in the lockdown but he was also live streaming his joyride. He was most certainly arrested by the cops for such carelessness on Monday. Abhinay belongs to a wealthy family and he’s an architect by profession.

Even amidst the lockdown, he took his BMW out for a spin and went as far as 20 km away from his house, roaming around in the city and streaming. Not just this, he even stopped at a road-side eatery for a quick meal at Murshidabad. Along with this- Soni was live streaming all his activities via his facebook profile.

Being out on roads without any valid reason and his action of going live on Facebook somehow caught the attention of the cops. The police traced Abhinay and eventually arrested hum. As stated, people are only allowed to move outside of their homes for emergency purposes or for procuring necessary items in the lockdown. No one is allowed to go out of their homes without a valid reason or you might have to face heavy penalties. The authorities are taking various measures to stop the vehicular and unnecessary movements of the fellow citizens.

This is not the first time where the cops have taken a drastic step against the rule breakers. In various states, the police have seized thousands of vehicles from people who were out without proper protection and valid reason.

These vehicles will only be returned after the lockdown gets over. In many cases, the cops are also imposing big fines on the offenders. Getting arrested and taken to jail will be the worst outcome of such irresponsible behavior.

What about the other states, How’re they being treated in the lockdown

In Maharashtra, a few people were arrested after they live-streamed their activities on Facebook. Such activities not only encourage more people to come out of their homes, but also breaks the purpose of the lockdown.

We know that it’s a great pleasure in riding luxury cars and traveling outside. But it’s for your own safety!

We request everyone to stay at home and abide the rules that have been laid down by the authorities. Even after the lockdown lifts, practicing social distancing will be the best way to stay healthy and keep from getting infected from various infections. Its certainly difficult but its the only way to overcome the situation.
