Mangaluru, March 27, 2020: Police are trying every trick in the book to crack the whip on lockdown violators. First, many of the violators were baton charged. In many places they were made to do push-ups and squats. And now the police here are making the lockdown violators hold a placard with the writing "I am guilty, I have violated Covid-19 lockdown orders."
Those who came out of their homes amid the lockdown for literally no reason were made to hold such placards by the city police and Ramakrishna Mission volunteers at some places in the city.
