In Nagpur, wear mask or face legal action!

Nagpur: Citizens now cannot step out any more without wearing a mask in Nagpur. Violation of the order could mean arrest and being booked under section 188 of the IPC (disobedience to order duly promulgated by a public servant), which has a minimum punishment of six months’ imprisonment.

The mask must be at least three-ply or a homemade one. The order, issued by Municipal Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe on Wednesday “in larger public interest”, applies to citizens as well as all government officials and comes into immediate effect.
