NEW DELHI: A 31-year-old man from South Delhi’s Rajokri Village filed a complaint against his 59-year-old father for violating the imposed lockdown norms. Following the complaint by Abhishek Singh, the police of Vasant Kunj Police Station registered a First Information Report (FIR) on Wednesday.
According to the FIR, Singh alleged that his father (Virender Singh) was not following the lockdown rules. “Even after explaining to him over a thousand times about the deadly pandemic, he did not listen to us and frequently went out for walks. He not only was exposing himself to the risk of contracting the virus but was also putting all of our lives back home at risk as well,” said Singh.
