KOCHI: Employees of Velankannimatha private bus plying on Ernakulam-Poothotta route were warned by Udayamperoor police on Thursday for violating social distancing norms while operating its service,.
The police officers said the bus started its trip from Ernakulam in the evening and carried passengers on the way. 

“We received a complaint about the violation over a phone call. We caught them from Karaparambu bus stop. But it was empty. So, we warned the crew and didn’t register any case,” said a police officer.  Though the police have received a photograph of the violation, the officials said they cannot register a case based on it as they didn’t have any witnesses to validate the authenticity of the photograph. M B Sathyan, president, Kerala Private Bus Operators’ Federation, said the organisation has already asked members to follow lockdown regulations.
