Meanwhile, strict restrictions have been imposed across the country to prevent COVID-19 spread. However, in some places it is not being observed. A similar incident has taken place in Uttar Pradesh. Many people gathered in the Badaun district of Uttar Pradesh, despite the imposition of COVID-19 lockdown in the state, to pay their respects to an Islamic cleric named Qazi Hazrat Abdul Hameed Mohammed Salimul Qadri during his funeral. A video of the procession that went viral on social media showed many people who were not wearing face masks and were breaking social distancing rules.

Superintendent of Police, Sankalp Sharma said, "An FIR has been lodged against unidentified people for violating COVID-19 protocols during the funeral procession of a religious leader in Badaun. FIR was lodged under IPC 188 and other relevant sections of IPC".
