Maharashtra Home Minister, Anil Deshmukh recently shared a video of Maharashtra police singing the popular song from Safrosh, ‘Zindagi Maut Na Ban Jaye’ in order to urge people to stay at home and practice social distancing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a nationwide lockdown until April 14 to contain the spread of deadly coronavirus and to contribute to the same efforts, the police officials made a “musical demand” to all the residents to remain indoors.
