Karnataka: Group attacks Gram Panchayat members when asked to wear a mask

Karnataka: Chikkaballapur Gram panchayat member and his associate were attacked over an argument for not wearing a mask. Those who were attacked are now admitted to the government hospital with severe injuries in their head. There is an ongoing lockdown in Karnataka, and all covid 19 protocols must be followed, including wearing a proper mask. Some people were not following the norms, and while the Gram Panchayat member and his associate try to enforce that norm, they came under attack. The associate was ready to give them a spare mask instead, but they attacked Gram Panchayat's members. The man also told the Gram members that wear a mask is unscientific.
