“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.”
