FIROZABAD: In a bid to teach a lesson to people who get out on streets without wearing a mask, the Firozabad district administration here along with the police have come up with an idea under which a person who has not worn one will be made to write 500 times - 'mask lagaana hai (a mask has to be worn)'.
Aptly named as 'mask ki class', the class will have a police official, an official of the district administration and a doctor.
Senior Superintendent of Police Sachindra Patel on Sunday said, "In this class, lessons will be imparted to those people who are found moving out without a mask."
These people will not face any police action but will be made to sit in the class for 3-4 hours.
In the class, the violators will be first shown a video telling them the benefits and necessity of wearing a mask, the SSP added.
"Then, they will be made to write 'mask lagaana hai (a mask has to be worn)' 500 times," Patel said.
The SSP informed that the campaign will begin from Tilak Inter College and will be monitored by the Superintendent of Police and City Magistrate.
