A group of people trying to defend lockdown in Patiala, Punjab got so agitated by the police that they chopped the hands off of a cop. They first broke the barricades and then when asked for curfew passes, attacked the policeman. The Nihangs (a religious sect) then fled and hid in a Nihang gurdwara from where they were arrested after 2 hours of stand down. Punjab, a state with the highest number of people who returned from abroad, is taking the lockdown seriously and amidst the strict lockdown such incidents make the matters worse.
