Mangaluru (Karnataka) [India], April 30 (ANI): The Mangaluru Rural Police on Thursday registered a case against the management of Expert Pre University College in Karnataka's Valachil, under Epidemic Diseases Act for allegedly violating COVID-19 norms amid the imposition of a lockdown in order to flatten the curve of the new surge in COVID-19 cases.
The college has been accused of allegedly holding classes and other academic activities on campus despite being a two-week-long lockdown in the state due to the surge in coronavirus cases.
A curfew has been imposed in Karnataka from 9 pm of April 27 to 6 am on May 12.

"The 2-weeks strict rules to break the chain of Covid virus have begun. My appeal to everyone: follow the guidelines, cooperate with the govt, stay indoors, and step out only if it's an emergency. Together, we all can defeat the Covid-19 pandemic," Yediyurappa tweeted.
