Streets of Bhopal wore a deserted look on the occasion of Eid-al-Adah as a 10-day lockdown is being observed in the city due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Lockdown is implemented here so we have also deployed police at various places," the DC said.

A person said, "The government has given some rules which we are following and celebrating the festival. The whole world is stressed with this pandemic. We are caring for ourselves by following rules."
