No social distance, mask below the chin, and some not wearing, a large crowd gathered as a grand Karaga procession took place in Bengaluru outskirts flouting Covid protocols and Lockdown rules.  

This incident happened at Doddaballapur village about 60 kilometres away from Bengaluru city last night during the annual Karaga festival.

Hundreds of devotees gathered to witness the annual Karaga event. During the event, even the police present did not make an effort to question the violation of rules.

Doddaballapur falls under Bengaluru Rural district that is also hit by Covid. The district so far has reported 603 deaths and 51,156 cases since March 2020 and at present has 13,442 active cases.
