The city witnessed deserted roads as people remained in their houses on the second day of the lockdown here on Tuesday. Though a few private vehicles were seen hitting the streets citing various reasons, the police personnel who were deployed at the police check points stopped and enquired with them.

Most of the busiest places in the city, such as Secunderabad railway station road, Chikkadpally, Nampally, Banjara Hills, Madhapur, Khairatabad, Ameerpet, Lakdi ka Pul, Abid Road were almost empty as police personnel restricted vehicular movement.

The usually crowded places like Balanagar, Bowenpally, Himayathnagar, Kukatpally, LB Nagar and Miyapur among others were seen mostly deserted due to the lockdown. Those unaware of the restrictions ventured out on the roads and were left confused as police personnel directed them back home.

People who usually come out for morning walks, to collect milk and newspaper were not seen as well. “Both law and order police and traffic police officials have been deployed at every junction with essential services, we are here to enforce it, ” said a police officer from Chikkadpally division.

Officials said everything was under control so far in the State and there was nothing to panic. Essential services like milk services, medical services were uninterrupted.
