Despite the imposition of Section 144 in Nagpur, citizens were spotted exercising at what appears to be Walkers Street near Ramgiri and Japanese Garden after the state declared a shutdown on all the gyms until March 31 amidst the Coronavirus epidemic.

As per ANI, one of the residents Hardeep Bhatia said, “We are building our immunity system by exercising.”

District and Magistrate Collector of Nagpur Ravindra Thakare issued a communiqué on Wednesday and ordered city’s clubs, bars, restaurants, wine shops and paan kiosks to remain shut until March 31 to combat the virus.
