Vehicles seized, dumped at Pandav Nagar police station cause traffic build-up

Vehicles impounded by the police at East Delhi’s Pandav Nagar police station and allegedly dumped outside its premises, have turned out as a major disturbance to traffic in Mayur Vihar Phase II region.

Locals in the area witness chaos everyday at the road near the police station, which is situated close to a community hall, a temple, a Gurudwara, a hospital, a school, three wine and beer shops and a make-shift market. The problem is exacerbated by the on-going metro construction in the area, said Harish Chandra Dhoulakhandi, member of the Resident’s Welfare Association in Mayur Vihar (II).

The vehicles that are dumped outside the police station premises are actually those seized by the local police that have not been claimed by the public so far or were involved in accidents. The dumped vehicles occupy half the road and disturb the movement of traffic causing long traffic halts and noise pollution.

Dhoulakhandi added that the problem exists for the past two years. He also claimed that the matter has been communicated, time and again, to the SHO of the concerned police station, concerned ACP and senior officials of DCP, joint commissioner and even special commissioner. However, nothing has been done about it. Agitated locals recently approached the Member of Parliament from East Delhi, Maheish Girri, who reportedly communicated the matter to Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi and asked him to take immediate action, said a source.

The matter was also communicated to the administration. And District Magistrate (East), Kunal, soon tweeted: “We  have taken the entire stretch under District Task Force. Results will be seen soon.”
