Shop early to endure 4-day total shut down: police not to allow any movement even locally

With the state announcing total lockdown in Chennai city from Sunday early for four days, there is bound to be a shopping rush on Saturday.

So shop early to stock up on essentials because all shops are to be shut down on all three days – only authorised vegetable hawkers will be allowed to move into colonies to see at the doorstep.

Local police say that even in cases where people must visit a pharmacy store during lockdown, they must walk to the local store – bikes and cycles will be confiscated; these are strict rules that will be implemented in neighbourhoods.

“We do not want any movement save for essential services exempted like milk vans and ambulances,” said a local police officer.
