Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate Police on Wednesday made some youths in the State Capital do sit ups as punishment for venturing out amid the COVID-19 lockdown.

The incident has occurred at Chandrasekharpur and Vani Vihar area of the city. Some youths found roaming around on two wheelers and that too without helmet were taken to task by the police.

While videos of police using lathis on those flouting the lockdown guidelines are viral on social media, the measure taken by Commissionerate Police to warn the violators has earned appreciation.
