Tourists break confinement in India: other “creative” punishments have already been carried out by Indian police, such as doing a series of physical exercises or dancing in public
Ten foreign tourists broke the national confinement imposed in India as a result of the new coronavirus pandemic. As punishment, the country's police made visitors write the word “sorry” 500 times in a row.
Tourists from countries such as Mexico, Australia, the United States and Austria were caught walking through the streets of Rishikesh, in the north of the country. The city, known as the “yoga capital of the world” is famous for promoting spiritual retreats.
The atypical punishment was carried out as a warning so that other tourists do not disobey social isolation. According to an article published in G1 portal, the police officer Vinod Sharma, responsible for the occurrence, more than 700 tourists were seen circling the streets of the city in recent days.
Other “creative” punishments have already been carried out by the Indian police, such as doing a series of physical exercises or dancing in public. However, not all actions are so relaxed: recently published videos show Indian police acting truculently with people driving on the roads.
Currently, India has about 8,000 cases of the disease and more than 270 deaths. In the country, people are only allowed to circulate on the streets to carry out essential activities.
