Pune: Citizens fined for wearing masks improperly
Pune: The district and civic administration has made it mandatory to wear mask while going out in public places. Although most of the citizens are following these norms and instructions there are a few who have been fined for wearing the mask improperly. Police have been taking strict action against citizens who are found wearing mask but not covering their nose. Several citizens have protested against this harsh attitude of the law enforcement agencies, but the police and administration officials claim that wearing mask improperly is equivalent to not wearing it and hence action will be taken against such citizens.
So far, fines of Rs 12.5 crores have been collected by Pune police from 3 lakh people for not wearing masks and spitting in public places.
