In a move to contain the Covid-19 virus, and in order to crack down on lock down violators, the Tamil Nadu Police Department has stepped up vigilance, and have been taking action against those violating the lock down.
The police have arrested over 2,50,230 people, and have seized over 2,11,467 vehicles across the State. The entire lot of people arrested have been released on bail.
The decision to make arrests and seize vehicles has been taken after the Police Department spent considerable time raising awareness about the highly contagious Covid-19 virus, to no avail.
The Tamil Nadu Police Department has said that the intensity of arrests will increase over the coming days. It has advised people to stay confined to their homes.
In related news, the Karnataka Police Department has been confiscating out-of-State vehicles at Bangalore. The police have also confiscated vehicles in Gulbarga. A total of 4,500 vehicles have been impounded for violating the lock down and other curfews.
Governments across the country have been taking measures to keep violators at bay. The State Government of Kerala, for example, recently began deploying all-women teams on Royal Enfields to enforce the lock down in the state.
The officers who belong to the new Special Guards Unit have been deployed at one of the State's important cities, Thrissur. The officers have been deployed in teams of two, and are equipped with face masks and hand sanitizers for their safety.
Leaders of all States have advocated that citizens must stay indoors during the nationwide lock down, but that hasn't deterred people from staying outdoors, and worse, in large numbers.
Some States have allowed their Police Departments a free hand as far as ‘limited violence' is concerned, while other States like Kerala and Tamil Nadu have used more sophisticated methods to address the issue.
Thoughts About The Tamil Nadu Police Arresting Violators And Seizing Vehicles
This is a brilliant move by the Tamil Nadu Police Department. There are factions that just do not understand the gravity of the situation, and continue violating lock downs. We also know that people will continue to violate the lock down.
