What happened?

The biryani shop announced a three-day food festival, enticing customers to exchange old 1, 2, 5, and 10 paise coins for a serving of free chicken biryani. The offer, intended to attract patrons, quickly turned into chaos as eager biryani enthusiasts flocked to the establishment.

The surge in crowds caused a major traffic jam, hindering motorists on the national highway. Concerned citizens reported the congestion to the Kulithalai police station.
