Context: There is an emergency government in place (don’t worry Mom it’s more than peaceful time in Bangladesh) and all stores must close by 7pm.
The Headline: Light physical punishment for keeping shops open beyond 7:00pm
The story (verbatim, and no the typos aren’t mine):
A mobile court ordered about 70 traders to sit down and stand up by holding their ear in punished for keeping their shops open beyond 7:00m in Moulvibazar Thursday night.
My thoughts: The ol’ sit-down-and-stand-up-by-holding-their-ear-punishment – that’ll teach ‘em.
