At a time when Gujarat is witnessing a spike in Covid-19 cases, women in large numbers gathered in a village in Sanand in Ahmedabad district on May 4 to offer prayers at the Baliyadev temple. Senior police officer in Ahmedabad Rural district, KT Kamaria, said action has been taken against 23 people in this regard, including the Sarpanch of the village, reported NDTV.

In guidelines laid down by the state government last week, all religious places had been ordered to remain shut. Night curfew is also in place in several areas in the state. Gujarat reported 12,955 cases & 133 deaths in the last 24 hours, as per official data. Watch the video to know more.
