Port Blair, Aug 3: In a surprising move, the District Administration of South Andaman today ordered closure of Bhatu Basti market and the shops in the adjoining areas. The move was an unexpected one as the District Magistrate South Andaman District had already ordered closure of shops and establishments in the district from the midnight of 4th Aug. 2020 to 11th Aug. 2020. When Andaman Chronicle tried to find out the reason for this sudden move, we were told that the decision has been taken due to the rising number of cases from the area.
