On the night of March 24th, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a national lockdown that has stunted many households and mainly movement. This move was taken taking into consideration the rapid rate at which the corona virus has been growing across the nation. Coronavirus cases across the country have cross the 690 mark. People are finding it difficult to move out of their houses for basic medical facilities if required but today a shocking scene was shot on phone in Chennai.
Chennai has been in the center of viral news ever since the lockdown was announced. Earlier yesterday, video of a traffic cop pleading to the public to stay at home went viral. Today, a viral video of a policeman beating a man on two wheeler with his baton is going bonkers on social media. However, once the policeman hit him, the guy revealed that he was a doctor. The policeman was stunned and asked him why he did not reveal it earlier.
