Restrictions on places of worship in TN from today

From today morning till Sunday night, devotees will not be allowed to enter places of worship in Tamilnadu, in view of the increasing Covid-19 cases. Many temples today saw people offering prayers from outside. Meanwhile, the police have decided to intensify from today the night curfew in the State.

‘Yesterday was the first day, so we were a bit easy on violators and let them off after issuing a warning. But from today, strict action will be taken against them,’ said a police official. While petrol and diesel bunks would be allowed to function round the clock, shops, hotels and commercial establishments would remain shut during the night curfew and on lockdown days.
