Kumbh Mela: Massive crowds gather at Har Ki Pauri; IG says 'difficult to ensure social distancing'

Kumbh Mela Inspector General (IG) Sanjay Gunjyal admitted it is difficult to ensure social distancing norms during the second 'Shahi snan' where massive crowds have gathered to take a holy dip in River Ganga at Har Ki Pauri in Uttarakhand's Haridwar. "We are continuously appealing to people to follow COVID-19 appropriate behaviour. But due to the huge crowd, it is practically not possible to issue challans today. It is very difficult to ensure social distancing at ghats," Gunjyal said.
