Over 2,000 vehicles seized: Top Cop

Chennai: Greater Chennai City Police Commissioner A K Viswanathan has said more than 2,000 two-wheelers, cars and other vehicles were seized during the last few days of the new lockdown in the city and its suburbs.

Speaking to the media, he said the action has been taken for violating the lockdown guidelines and said the curbs would be even stricter in the days to come. “We are not against the public and we are their friends. This is for their good only,” he added.

He said 288 checkposts were set up and camera fitted drones were deployed to effectively implement for strict enforcement of lockdown.

“Drone cameras will be used to monitor the movement of people who roam around or venture out without any reason”, he added.

However, Amma canteens were allowed to function to ensure that free breakfast, lunch and dinner was served to the people.
