While it's true that people have had varying reactions to the nation-wide lockdown, in Mumbai's Kandivali, things took an unfortunate turn when a man allegedly killed his own brother for stepping out during the lockdown.

During the argument, he was allegedly attacked by a sharp object by his elder brother, the accused, Rajesh Laxmi Thakur. The victim was rushed to the hospital but declared dead on arrival. Currently, a case of murder has been registered against the accused.

It is important to remember that while a lockdown is necessary to curb the spread of the virus, the government has repeatedly assured that all essential services, including groceries and medicines, will remain available during the time.
