Restriction on movement of auto rickshaws in Yercaud

The police have issued orders restricting the movement of auto rickshaws beyond 9 p.m. in the hill station of Yercaud from Saturday.


The restriction follows the arrest of an auto rickshaw driver and his friend for allegedly sexually abusing a woman tourist hailing from Erode during late hours a few days ago in the hill station. The accused were remanded in judicial custody.

The police also directed all the shops functioning in Yercaud to close down at 10 p.m.

Stringent action

Those violating the orders would face stringent action, the police said.
