Rishi Dhawan receives a fine for violating lockdown protocols

The nationwide lockdown states that no one can step outside without a pass. Passes are given to only the essential workers and the NGOs who are feeding stray animals. However, Rishi Dhawan stepped out in his private vehicle at Himachal Pradesh. He was stopped by the local traffic authorities and a fine of INR 500 was imposed on him. Rishi Dhawan did not have a vehicle pass and hence he had to pay the fine on spot. Even though he stepped out during the relaxation period between 10am and 1pm to visit the bank, a pass is necessary.
