This is not the first time when the police is going to take such steps. We have already seen that the police have seized vehicles in several states in the past few days.
While many government officials have warned against taking walks on the public places during the lockdown period, the officials are now encouraging residents to avoid using vehicles and take a walk to their local shops.
