As the country continues to fight the pandemic and the situation is worsening by the day, many states, including Delhi are imposing curfews and lockdowns as a strict measure to control the situation. A weekend curfew was implied on the capital and while many people cooperated and abided by the law, some rule breakers went that extra mile and decided to dump their frustration on the Police only. A couple in Delhi was stopped for violating curfew rules and was not even wearing a mask. On being stopped and questioned, the couple shouted at the cops, insisted that they were married and if they kissed no one could stop them and argued why they were not wearing a mask. Someone has videotaped the entire incident and it has gone viral on the internet.
कोरोना के इस दौर में ऐसे जाहिल लोग भी याद किये जाएंगे ,कार में बैठा एक कपल बिना कर्फ्यू पास के दरियागंज इलाके में घूम रहा था वो भी बिना मास्क के,पुलिस ने जब रोका तो बोला अपने दोस्त को किस करूंगी,पुलिस ने केस दर्ज कर दोनों को गिरफ्तार किया pic.twitter.com/Z9iCnmp4Hu— Mukesh singh sengar मुकेश सिंह सेंगर (@mukeshmukeshs) April 18, 2021
Soon people started tweeting that the Police should take strict action against the couple for misbehaving and violating the norms.
@CPDelhi Should book the lady also, to stop the law enforcement from the duty, why the woman is let off without arrest, in fact, she was doing all the nautanki...My god ...— Jinxpm (@Jinxpm1) April 19, 2021
Soon after this video went viral, and the couple was being reprimanded on the internet, an FIR was lodged against them. The couple has been identified as residents of Patel Nagar and were arrested today.
#UPDATE | The couple that misbehaved with Delhi Police personnel in Daryaganj area yesterday, after they were stopped & asked the reason for not wearing face masks, has been arrested.

The Delhi High Court has made face masks as ‘necessary’ requirement for people driving alone as well because cars drive in public places after all. The CM today announced a lockdown from tonight till Monday next week because the number of daily cases in the capital is crossing a whopping 25,000 mark. It is impossible to contain the pandemic and come out of this situation if the residents of the country don’t do their bit. Please be kind to everyone around you because everyone’s mental health is obviously going for a toss but we must keep our calm.
