    Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's been mandatory in India to wear a face mask in public places.

    On Friday a bank security guard in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly District allegedly opened fire on a customer who was trying to enter without a mask, police said.

    The customer – Rajesh Kumar – was seriously injured and taken to hospital while the guard was arrested

    Kumar tried to walk into the bank at around 11:30am when he had an altercation with the guard, Keshav Prasad Mishra, who in a fit of anger fired at him, the police said.
