Now, the DC has issued a clarification regarding the same. He said that it was a private event held at home and that he removed the mask only for photograph.

“Only 20 people were there at the event. Additional SP stays near my house. I did not even stay back for dinner and had removed the mask only for photograph sake. I was back home before the curfew. Also as it was not a public place, mask was not mandatory,” he said.
