Delhi saw high-voltage drama after a couple misbehaved with the police personnel. The couple was stopped by the cops because they weren't wearing face masks inside their car.  After a heated argument, the couple was taken to the Daryaganj police station and a case was filed against them under various sections of the Delhi Disaster Management Act. Both the husband and the wife were arrested by the Delhi Police. The husband was nabbed on Sunday whereas the wife was caught today.

During the course of this argument, the couple started intimidating and scolding the police personnel. In this video, the woman says "I have cleared UPSC...".  One of the cops said in response that the woman needs to be more responsible since she has cleared UPSC.

The woman told the cops that she didn't see any need to wear a mask inside the car and what if she wants to kiss her husband. She said, "Why should I wear a mask in my car? What if I have to kiss my husband?"


Earlier this month, the Delhi High Court had said face masks are mandatory even if a person is driving all alone in a private vehicle, adding a car will be taken as "public place".

Meanwhile, Delhi is under a complete lockdown from 10 pm tonight (April 19) till 5 am next Monday (April 26) amid the rising COVID-19 cases. The national capital reported the highest rise in daily COVID-19 cases with 25,642 new cases and 161 deaths on Sunday. This was coupled with a positivity rate of almost 30 per cent, implying that one in three samples tested in Delhi is turning out to be COVID-19 positive.
