An action by station Quick Response Team (QRT) to pick up three motorcycles reportedly parked on A-1 Defence land angered owners of the vehicles on Monday,who claimed that the military acted outside its jurisdiction. The incident took place around 10.30 am when the QRT picked up three motorcycles parked on Phayre Road in Camp.

“Station Quick Reaction Team during its routine check found three unattended motorcycles parked on A-1 Defence land. Since no individual claimed the vehicles,they were picked and checked as per existing security procedures. The motorcycles have been handed over to police and FIR lodged,” said the Southern Command in a written statement.

K M Talera,a resident of Phayre Road to whose guests the bikes belonged,rejected the claim that they were parked on A-1 Defence land. “The motorcycles were parked opposite S M Joshi School,where hundreds of vehicles are parked everyday. We fail to understand why only these three bike were picked. We have filed a complaint at Wanowrie police station. It is not the job of military to pick up vehicles from here,” said Talera.
