Operation Chakravyuh to check traffic violators on Sundays, holidays
In a drive to curb the tendency to violate traffic laws on Sunday and other public holidays when there is thin presence of traffic police on city roads, the Delhi Traffic Police prosecuted as many as 170 people for violating road rules at an intersection in Central Delhi on Sunday.
The crossing of Ranjit Singh Marg and Mir Dard Marg in Central Delhi was selected for the drive. More than 20 teams with the help of PCR vans and local police carried out a surprise operation from 12 am to 2 pm, said Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Muktesh Chander.
A total of 170 traffic violators were booked for various offences. In many cases, car owners were booked for handing over their vehicles to minors. Some of the vehicles were also impounded, said Chander.
“There is a general impression that on Sundays and holidays there is thin presence of traffic police on roads. This gives rise to the tendency to violate traffic laws by the motorists. In order to check and control this tendency, the Delhi Traffic Police conducted operation ‘Chakravyuh’ to prosecute violators of traffic rules, particularly two-wheeler riders who had scant regard for the law,” said Chander.
“We will carry out operation Chakravyuh on various junctions and localities by surprise in the coming days,” Chander added.
