She also noted that she was arrested for flouting COVID-19 rules. Yesterday, she said, she was found outside after curfew hours.
The 4 AM to 9 PM curfew order is one of the many containment measures set by the government to combat the spread of COVID-19.
“I was arrested for flouting Covid-19 rules as I was found outside 40 minutes past curfew time. I was rushing back home while trying to beat the deadline. The police detained me after we had a little disagreement. I am okay and I don’t want to make a big deal out of it,” she told a local blog.
