A lot has happened in the past three weeks. From the sudden rise of the deadly novel Coronavirus which became a pandemic in no time to the aftermath of the disease which has led to a 21-day complete lockdown in India. On Thursday, Indian cricketer and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spinner Harbhajan Singh shared a video of a scuffle between a group of people and local police in the wake of the total lockdown announced by the Indin government following the sudden outbreak of COVID-19.
In the disturbing video, the hooligans can be seen resorting to initiate an assault on the police following an argument with the law enforcement agency. Harbhajan has remained vocal about the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic that has brought the entire nation to a standstill. Taking to Twitter and expressing his discontent about the hooligans punishing the police for doing their job, Harbhajan urged citizens of India to endorse a change of attitude towards the law enforcement agencies of the nation.

Plz be sensible,” Harbhajan wrote in his tirade against the menace of the society who are still fancying going out amid the nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
