“They were just curious to find out how the city looked like during a lockdown,” said a police officer.
Chief Secretary K Shanmugam, DGP LK Tripathy, Greater Chennai Police Commissioner AK Viswanathan and School Education Secretary Dheeraj Kumar were present.
As we prepare to tackle COVID-19 and with prisoners being granted parole, I appeal to Centre to release all detained under PSA & anti-CAA protesters.”
