Tipplers in the state of Karnataka who is going through a dry phase because of countrywide lockdown fell prey to an April fool day prank on social media that confirmed the availability of liquor at Gadag town on Wednesday.

People from various corners of the town queued up in front of a shop in Mulagund Road hoping to purchase some liquor unaware of the fact that it is April fool day. Although they were queued up in a disciplined manner, they had apparently ignored the norm of social distancing and stood in close proximity to each other. The crowd included women, youth and senior citizens.

The man who saw the incident and shot a video of the same said, “The tipplers were speculating that the shop would open on April 1 and today a person stood in the queue. Soon others too started following him. Thus a long queue was formed but to no avail.”
