Mangaluru: The Mangaluru City Police seized a total of 154 vehicles from lockdown violators on Thursday, April 2.
Even though the district administration strictly instructed the public not to leave their homes after 12 pm, many were found roaming in the streets unnecessarily. Hence, the police waylaid them, seized their vehicles and filed cases against them.
