10 tourists arrested for obstructing traffic inside Atal Tunnel

The Himachal Pradesh Police has arrested 10 tourists and seized three vehicles for obstructing traffic inside Atal Tunnel in Rohtang, a police officer said.

The tourists stopped their vehicles inside the tunnel, played music and started dancing which led to a traffic jam on Thursday, Kullu Superintendent of Police Gaurav Singh said.

The 10 tourists from Delhi, most of them in their twenties and thirties, were arrested and their three cars seized, he said.

They have been booked under sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
