Since COVID-19 cases are on the rise around the country and there is a lot of talks about another lockdown, a Hyderabad man identified as Sreepathi Sanjeev Kumar thought April 1 was the best day to prank everyone saying that a night curfew was imposed in the city.
So, the chartered accountant, a native of Nellore District in Andhra Pradesh edited a previous government order on lockdown and circulated it on Whatsapp, making it look like there was a fresh curfew in the city.
