However, traffic on the route was caused by a fallen tree which had been struck by a truck near the approach road military gate near Ibbalur on the outer ring road. Deputy Police Commissioner (Traffic Department South) Sujeetha Salman shared details with commuters on Twitter, urging them to “choose an alternate road route.”

However, Mr. Lohiya’s caught the attention and garnered several comments. One user wrote: “Imagine the pressure when she has to work on a friggin’ bike. How insensitive the employers are. But if she’s late of her own accord, it’s her own fault.”
Another user wrote: “Imagine the pressure, the feeling of being lost in your own town where you work 10+ hours a day, the contempt. All she needed was a smooth, traffic-free road on which to commute peacefully from home without having to be accountable for the “extra” hour it takes to cover a 5km run .”
The third user commented: “Everything was fine with WFH, but no, the companies had to prevail and suppress the employees.”
“It shouldn’t be glorified. This is crappy corporate culture,” wrote the fourth user.
