Can police in India do it?It is reported in the newspapers that the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia was fined for the breach of COVID 19 protocols. Barnaby Joyce was paying for fuel in a fuel filling station without wearing a mask. A citizen of Australia noticed the same and called Crime Stoppers, an emergency hotline. Immediately the police arrived at the fuel service station and enquired. They imposed a fine on him for breaching a public health order by not wearing a mask. This is a piece of authentic news that got published in many newspapers.
This incident tells us about the awareness of the public in following the protocols. Many of our leaders are talking in public without any mask. But nobody will object to it. Here my question is whether somebody complains also whether the police can take such an action on a VIP? Can police in India do it?
