According to Yashpal Yadav, Commissioner, Gurugram’s Municipal Corporation, there is a high demand for water in summers and hence, the body was keeping a check on people who waste or use drinking water for other purposes. In order to prevent this, the Municipal Corporation started a campaign in which the officials educate the people to not waste drinking water. When the flying squad checked the locality where Virat Kohli stays, a lot of people were found washing their cars with drinking water and Kohli’s staff was caught doing the same thing.
As a result, a fine of Rs 500 was imposed. The fine has reportedly been paid by Kohli’s staff already.
