Police irked over locals stepping out of homes without reason
Kozhikode: This is the first time in history that Indians are not stepping out of their homes. All of us stand united in fighting corona epidemic. Yet, when some people see that the roads and streets are empty, they get stimulated. They are the ones who are involved in picking up fights with police officers who are doing their duty.
On the third day of the lockdown, some people drove 15 kms to Kozhikode town in order to buy fish. Some others wanted to buy mixture. A youth told the police officers on Tuesday that he stepped out as he felt like drinking tea. The police officers couldn't help but laugh after hearing this.
Police have seized a lot of vehicles and have made it clear that it will be handed over only after 21 days.
Police seized more than 500 vehicles for breaking the law within the limit of Kozhikode city. People going for essential services will be let go after they show a pass. However, police has decided that those breaking the law will be severely dealt with.
