Movement beyond two km is permitted only for attending office or medical emergencies, a senior police official mentioned, adding that movement outside this radius for any other activity is strictly prohibited. Mumbai police known for their witty take on social media on this issue tweeted saying, "Driving past 2 kms of your place of residence for ‘fun’? 'We know a spot' for your car." Maharashtra is one of the worst-hit states in the country in the coronavirus pandemic. From today, salons have opened in the city after a span of three months.
