Corporation officials today made surprise visits to public places across the five zones of the city and imposed fines totaling Rs 2,700 on those found defecating in the open.

The visit follows orders from Corporation Commissioner Dr K Vijayakarthikeyan, who had earlier advised people to use public toilets if they did not have one at home.

The corporation, along with Clean India Movement, has been involved in spreading awareness about use of toilets.
