Chennai police have filed 758 cases against people who were caught bursting crackers violating the Supreme Court regulations and have also booked 239 shops for breaking rules and selling firecrackers on Diwali.

As per reports, the Chennai cops have come down heavily on those who were bursting crackers without following the Supreme Court orders with 758 people booked and arrests being made.

Reportedly, the Tamil Nadu government had instructed people to burst crackers from 6 am to 7 am in the morning and 7 pm to 8 pm in the evening on Diwali.
