Bhopal: Wedding season is on and the state is in curfew mode. Nevertheless, no virus has stopped the series of weddings in the city.

People are still gathering in huge numbers and giving wide berth to the norms while celebrating their happiness. A group of celebrants in Bhind were booked by the police and punished in style.

The police were informed that about 500 people were sent invitations for the ceremony that was going on at the tribal hostel despite the ban on social gatherings.

When the police reached the venue located right behind the government hospital, they found at least 300 people present there enjoying ëFaladaaní ceremony. There was no distance between the guests and only a few wore masks.

Sighting the police, the crowd tried to escape the venue, but were trapped. That was when the team decided to punish the violators in style.

They queued up the Baraatis outside the venue and asked them to perform 'Frog Jumps'.

The team scolded both hosts and the guests and asked them to jump like the frogs do.

A video has gone viral on social media where the police are seen beating them up if someone failed to jump properly.

The station in charge told Free Press that they have registered FIR against the bridegroom Mukesh Jatav. The tent owner has been booked too, he said.

When asked if the families did not fear the virus or the police, they said nobody had thought the police would ever find out.

Jatav said he was to get married and did not want to postpone the ceremony just because of fear.
