    continue to do

    He continue to do this with impunity all over India.
    He is doing this with impunity all over India.

    What are the differences between two sentences in context of meaning?

    About context, maybe if you provide some more we will be able to comment.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: continue to do

    May I take "continues to do this" to mean "previously did this and is still doing now"?
