Kundapur, Mar 25: Police personnel showed the taste of lathis to those who were on the roads here, on Wednesday.

The police on Tuesday, the first day of the state curfew sent back those who found loitering around unnecessarily with a warning.

Purchase of milk, medicine, vegetable and items of daily use were exempted, but misuse of the government’s relaxation by some people was found on Wednesday. Soon after ASP Hariram Shanker ordered for lathi charge, the team of Kundapur traffic police and city police station hit drivers with lathis before sending them home.

As coronavirus is on a rapid spread, the state government called for a lockdown on Monday night itself. The pandemic can be controlled only when social distance is maintained. Therefore, curfew orders are enforced in the district, but the drivers were seen unnecessarily driving their private vehicles.

ASP Hariram Shanker who went to the field carrying a lathi drove away people from Kundapur fish market road. Kundapur police station, PSI Harish R Naik and traffic station, PSI Pushpa-led team resorted to lathi charge.

Biscuits, water, fruits and meals are arranged from Parijatha hotel for police personnel on duty, journalists, medical team, doctors and activists who are working to control the pandemic. Volunteers JCI Kundapur city workers arranged for their distribution from Kundapur to Byndoor.
