Seeing Visakhapatnam getting first makes all our vizagites happy, but this time it is for a very wrong cause. Visakhapatnam stood first in violating lockdown restrictions in overall Andhra Pradesh.
Andhra Police department said that the highest number of lockdown violation cases were reported in Visakhapatnam.
The cities which reported more cases after Visakhapatnam are Ananthapur, Nellore and Vijayawada.
Most of the cases were booked under Sec 179 of the Motor Vehicles Act. An amount of Rs 7.04 crore was collected in the state for the cases registered for violating the lockdown restrictions.
