“A fine of Rs.400 was imposed when Sisodia’s car was found over-speeding by our interceptor vehicle on June 12 evening,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Sandeep Goel told IANS.

The car, with registration number DL 10 CA 0017, was stopped by a traffic police team, an officer said.

“As the car did not stop, it was chased by a traffic constable on a bike who later issued the challan (ticket),” the officer said.

On being questioned how many VIPs have been fined recently, Goel said: “It is very difficult to get the name of any VIP who was challaned recently.”

He clarified that since the fines were issued on the name of the drivers, it was difficult to find out the name of the VIPs.

Replying to a question whether VIPs have priviledges on this score, Goel said: “The rules are equal for everyone.”

    Delhi Police has one set of Rule implementation procedure for AAP and and another set for others. They will behave in a neutral manner only if they are brought under Delhi Govt.

      Why Mr. Sisodia allowed him in the first place? The arrogance crept in the movement somebody does get a VIP tag. VIP acronym should be advertised in bold: very inferiority complexed person. Then, our people shame and may do put a stop to it.

          Great well done. Very strange never before have heard of a VIP vehicle being fined for over speeding and more strange that Police find it difficult to answer how many have been fined recently.

            BJP leader Munde was killed recently while jumping red light and overspeeding by his driver. Our elected ministers should be more careful about these matters. But its a miracle that Delhi police is now giving challans to Delhi govt ministers. But still why not central ministers or other luminaries?
