An advocate in the District and Sessions Court has lodged a complaint with the Police and the Administration regarding harassment at the hands of the Traffic Police as they were allegedly sending traffic violation slips in his wife’s name without a reason.

According to complainant Ajay Sood,he had lodged a complaint against three police personnel: constable Kaptan Singh,Sub-Inspector Gurdev Singh and DSP Jagbir Singh in the Police Complaints Authority (PCA).

The PCA had passed an order on December 2,2011,where it made a recommendation for suspending and departmental action against Kaptan Singh and Gurdev Singh. The Authority had also recommended disciplinary action against DSP Jagbir Singh.

In his complaint,Sood had written that his wife Babita Sood had received a traffic violation slip few days ago in which she was shown to be driving a car without wearing a seatbelt on June 14,2011. He has further said that he and his wife do not own any car by that number and own an Activa scooter. He further mentioned that even if the the police had erred in writing down the number of his wife’s scooter,the challan had been done for a wrong traffic violation (not wearing a seatbelt).

He further stated that the car was registered in the name of a Sector 41 resident who he or his family members were not associated in any professional or social way,“Even if Babita was driving the car,the challan should have come to the address of the vehicle owner and not to his house.”

He has requested the authorities to investigate the matter and wants appropriate action to be taken against the erring police officials who were trying to harass his family.

DSP (Traffic) Vijay Kumar,who was out of the city,said ,“I am not aware of the complaint,but appropriate action will be taken if anyone is found guilty.”
