‘Absence of adequate cops at airports encourage touting’

Effective policing and lack of adequate number of cops at the airport here encourage touts and illegal activities, bringing a bad name to the country, a Delhi court said on Wednesday holding an auto driver guilty of alluring passengers outside the arrival hall. Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma held Jitender Kumar guilty under the 2010 Delhi Prevention of Touting and Malpractices against Tourists Act, observing that it was common that outside the airport’s arrival hall, “unscrupulous” auto and cab drivers lure passengers with promises of cheap hotels and usually misbehave with them. “The absence of adequate police officials outside arrival hall gives encouragement to these unlawful activities by these law breakers.... These illegal activities show lack of effective policing.”
