Thane police have found a unique way to shame people flouting COVID-19 lockdown rules. On Tuesday, policemen were seen performing ''aarti'' of people who were out on the streets for a morning walk.
In a video of the ''aarti'' by Thane police, a few young men were seen standing with bowed heads. A woman police officer, wearing a protective face mask, was seen performing ''aarti'' of the lockdown violators.
Another police officer at the site was seen explaining the consequences of moving outdoors during the pandemic.
The video has been viewed over 82,000 times on Twitter. It has also collected over 4,000 'likes', with several Twitter users commenting in support of the unique step by Thane police.
