In the said video, people could be seen defying lockdown norms and flouting social distancing advisory openly. The Delhi Police can be heard telling people to disperse and telling Imran Hussain to allow them to perform their duty while he performs his. The Police can also be heard telling the AAP MLA that he is interfering with his work. The conduct of Imran Hussain severely jeopardises India’s battle against the Wuhan Coronavirus which is known to be gravely infectious.
