Popular silk showroom sealed in Chennai after video of massive crowd goes viral
Kumaran Silks, a popular textiles and garments store in Chennai, was sealed by the city’s civic body on Tuesday after a video showing a massive crowd gathered inside the multi-storeyed showroom ahead of the festive season but in violation of social distancing rules.
Officials of the Greater Chennai Corporation came to know about violation of covid rules after a video of overcrowding in the store went viral on social media. Women were seen without masks in the showroom. The officials are yet to declare the fine amount and the period for which the store would remain shut.
