Two men arrested, FIR registered
The Karachi police raided a wedding in Orangi Town for violating coronavirus SOPs Tuesday night.
According to the deputy commissioner, the groom managed to flee from the wedding, while his father and uncle have been arrested. An FIR has been registered.
"We have a zero-tolerance policy against anyone not following the precautionary measures," he said.
The Sindh government has banned all outdoor weddings and gatherings. On Tuesday, new instructions by the chief minister barred people in the province from hosting parties or events with more than 10 people.
The movement of vehicles after 8pm has been restricted in Karachi, except for those travelling with a "valid reason".
The decisions were taken after the coronavirus cases in Sindh rose. The infection rate in Karachi has surpassed 13%, while that of the province is above 8%.
