Former India cricketer Robin Singh was fined Rs 500 and had his car seized on Thursday for allegedly violating lockdown rules in Chennai.
According to PTI, the 56-year-old had reportedly used his car to travel from Adyar to Utthandi to purchase vegetables in a market and was caught by police personnel for the violation.
He neither had the mandatory e-pass nor any valid reasons to travel in his car and was thereby fined Rs 500 for the violation, police sources said.
According to lockdown rules, people are advised to move only within two km of their residences to buy essential items and asked not to use their vehicles.
The car has been seized and taken to the Shastri Nagar police station in the city, the sources said.
