Police in Vasco Goa celebrate Holi by promoting safety during the pandemic

There was a colourful splash of hope and compassion even though the pandemic put a damper on Holi festivities this year. After Section 144 was enforced, police officers in Vasco were kept busy stopping crowds from forming.

The police went about the city spreading awareness about the coronavirus and met different people like fast-food sellers and fruit vendors.

“We wanted to have a friendly festival celebration and at the same time make people realise that the coronavirus threat is real. With an increase in the number of cases related to the virus, we decided to sanitise and sensitise people about Covid-19,” revealed Nilesh Rane, Vasco police inspector. “Instead of colourful water, we sprayed sanitisers on people’s hands, and in place of gulal, we placed masks on people’s faces,” he added.
