Mancherial: A man was fined Rs 500 for not wearing a mask while moving in Rebbenapalli village in Dandepalli mandal on Wednesday.
Rebbenapalli Panchayat Raj Secretary Shravan said that the violator was Mutyam Srinivas, a resident of the village. Srinivas was found moving in streets without taking precautions. He was imposed the fine for not wearing the face mask even as awareness was created over importance of the gear.
Government made it mandatory to wear face masks while stepping out recently. On April 10, Chouwhan Tulsiram, a farmer was fined Rs 1,000 for allegedly violating lockdown by crossing his habitation for five times, at Mukra (K) village in Echoda mandal of Adilabad district.
