Gwalior: Face mask violators to write essay on Covid-19 as punishment

The Gwalior district administration, as part of its “Roko-Toko” campaign to curb the spread of coronavirus, have come out with a novel punishment for those violating the face mask rules.
Under the initiative, violaters will have to write an essay on Covid-19 as a punishment for violating the Covid norms. The violators are being made aware of Covid norms, besides being penalised for flouting the rules and then sent to open jail.
On Saturday, at least 20 people were sent to the open prison at the Captain Roop Singh stadium and were made to write an essay on Covid.
Gwalior District Magistrate Kaushlendra Vikram Singh said many people in Gwalior were not adhering to the social distancing norms, and some of them could be spotted without face masks or many just hang the masks around their necks.
