Amid stringent restrictions during Coronavirus lockdown, a video has taken social media by storm. During the period of lockdown, we might have witnessed stories of people violating curfew in various bizarre ways but this incident beats them all.
A viral video, which features a drone allegedly delivering pan masala in Gujarat's Morbi, is doing rounds on social media. After the flying pan masala video was uploaded on Tik Tok, two persons were detained by the police for attempting to deliver pan masala using a drone.
Under the Epidemic Act, the police has initiated a probe against the accused. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced lockdown on March 24 after incidents of breaking into liquor stores have surfaced in the past. The probe is underway.
