As coronavirus cases continue to 'plague' the nation, 31 people were arrested from a nightclub called Playgue in Delhi's Paschim Vihar. This has only left netizens appalled at the carelessness of these capital covidiots.
The incident occurred on Tuesday night, when a police team found the entire clubbing happening in the garb of a restaurant with a takeaway facility. The club, however, didn't even have the license to serve liquor.
The club owner and his brother were also present at the party have been arrested and booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code including IPC Section 188 (violation of government order).
The incident shook netizens and had them expressing their outrage at the thoughtless act of people at a time when Delhi is seeing over one lakh confirmed coronavirus cases and India has crossed the one million mark.
Netizens pointed out how "Delhi can't stop being Delhi" and continued to "playgue hard" despite the threat of the pandemic.

6. without a liquor licence.7. Invitations through a secret WhatsApp group8. which also included the owners.9. The police were alerted after the patrons' cars caused a traffic jam outside. Nothing summarises Delhi's distaste for the rules like this story.— Karanjeet Kaur (@Kaju_Katri) July 17, 2020
