Over 5,000 vehicles confiscated all over Karnataka for lockdown violation


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Mar 31: The people have been taking the lockdown order lightly and going out on the road even when the same is not extremely necessary. Repeated pleas of the government officials in this respect have been dismissed with impunity. As such, the police are now taking stronger measures. Over 5,000 vehicles have been confiscated from all over the state and fine running into lacs of rupees has been imposed.

The police have been pleading with the people that they need to keep outside visits to the bare minimum, that too only when there is a dire need. The very purpose of lockdown gets defeated if the people crowd markets or roads.

Efforts to tame the violators with the help of batons too did not work. Therefore, they have now taken a decision to take vehicles into custody and register cases against violators. As a result, more than 5,000 vehicles from the state including 2,000 from Bengaluru alone were taken into custody.

The Bengaluru police have since released the vehicles to the owners, duly warning them of taking strict measures if violations are witnessed henceforth. They have said that from Tuesday onward, vehicles which would be seized will not be returned till April 14.

    Very bad. Seizing of vehicles moving from one locality to another, one town to another without valid reasons may be necessary. But seizing of vehicles for bringing day to day essentials from shops in the same locality is definitely wrong. Keeping social distance is important. But the very purpose itself is defeated. All the instructions of Police Commissioner is taken in a negative manner. How can Senior Citizens can bring Rice , wheet, etc weighing more than their lifting capacity that too by walk for more than a couple of Kilometres? Public should be allowed to go out atleast for few hours in a day using their own vehicles. Beyond the stipulated time slot, government can take action against violators if there is no valid reasons.

    Perhaps we should give the benefit of doubt to the police that those caught were enjoying casual driving without any purpose.

    Not only cease the vehicles but also charge a huge penalty and 3 months license cancel to get the good lesson for next. (like in Arab countries).
