Jayaraj, a police inspector attached to Marina police station told Mylapore Times this evening, “Although the beach is still closed to the public, since the past two days, hundreds of people have been coming to the beach to walk or exercise. The crowd has been high especially in the evenings.”
Also, most of them were seen not wearing masks or maintaining social distance, he says.
So to restrict people’s movement, the officer says 10 policemen are now deployed on the service road of Marina. “We have also barricaded all entry points to discourage people from coming inside the beach.”
