According to reports, the police have been registering offences against the violators since March 2020 with the outbreak of the coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown. With 159 offences registered on Tuesday, the total number of offences registered so far has reached 30,662.

Moreover, on Tuesday, the city police registered 55 separate offences against people flouting COVID-19 norms, loitering at public places and against those caught without masks. In addition, 22 offences were registered against shop keepers for violating curbs while 16 cases we're registered were of crowding at public places. Furthermore, four separate cases were registered against hotels and against suspects violating quarantine measures.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray earlier on April 13, 2021, announced a curfew to break the chain of coronavirus infection in the state, and only essential services were excluded to ensure convenience for the public. However, despite sec 144, the spread of coronavirus has not decreased in the state and a large number of people are still leaving their homes. Officials have also noted that people are walking on the streets and crowding several areas in the name of essential services. As a result, COVID-19 cases are on a rise and the state is currently running out of beds, oxygen and medicines, which had added a lot of pressure on the health system.
