The police force, who has been posted around Chennai’s Apollo Hospital since September 22, were even asked to report for duty at 7 am on December 5, soon after the news about Amma’s heart attack was made public.

Law and order was maintained when she was alive. It’s been maintained when she’s dead now. But police are the unsung heroes #TNPolice
