Coronavirus outbreak: Indian police punish lockdown offenders with violence, push-ups
As India began its three-week lockdown on Wednesday, police punished people who ventured outdoors with beatings, and in some cases, push-ups, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered 21-day nationwide confinement to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Police enforced the lockdown by beating people with batons, and in Mumbai, Nagpur, and Mau cities law enforcement resorted to handing out sit-ups and squats in public as punishment.
India has reported, so far, 562 positive cases of COVID-19 and 11 deaths.
