The policemen were shouting: Yeh Corona faila rahe hain, the doctors bahar thodi ghumte hain (these people are spreading the crown, the doctors are not moving), the duo said.
ASP Sanjay Sahu said Bag Sewania police received information Wednesday that some people were gathering in violation of the blockade.
