India is under a 21-day lockdown and we’re all confined to our homes. Meanwhile, police is patrolling the road to make sure everyone is safe and indoors.
However, a group of foreigners broke the lockdown rules and were given a ‘punishment’ by the cops that’ll remind you of your school days.
The ten foreigners from different countries were taking a stroll in Rishikesh and not practicing social distancing during the lockdown, Sub-inspector Vinod Kumar Sharma told PTI. So, they were asked to write ‘sorry’ 500 times as a punishment.
