In a move that drew flak, Mandya Tahsildar Chandrashekar Shyam violated Covid-19 norms by celebrating his son's first birthday in a grand manner at a private hotel at Krishnaraja Sagar in Srirangapatna taluk on Wednesday night.

He invited a large number of friends and relatives to the party. Those attending the birthday party did not wear masks and neglected social distancing, which was a blatant violation of Covid-19 norms. 

It is said that Tahsildar Chandrashekar had not taken any permission for organising the event. The party was held till late night, locals complained. They also sought action against him.

The locals also complained against KRS Police for not registering a case. Deputy Commissioner S Aswathi has sought a report in this regard.
