I asked them where they are going at that time and they said that they came there to breathe some air. I said that it is not a right thing to do at this time when the government has announced lockdown” said Riyaz Khan who went on to explain further regarding the incident.
“When I asked them where their house is, they said that it is in the other side of the road. I asked them to breathe in their home’s terrace. They kept arguing with me. They confronted me by saying that they are not standing in my house but in a road. They didn’t understand what I was saying.” he added.
