Srinagar: Inspector General of Police, Traffic, Basant Rath, days after saying that he won’t accept VIP culture, in an exemplary move towed away a police jeep of the Kothi Bagh police station.
In a Facebook post, Rath posted a picture of the vehicle being towed away with a caption, “Equality before Law, ladies and gentlemen.”
The post has gone viral on social media. People were showering praising on the actions of the cop.
One of the comments read that, ” Thank you sir. Today I realized that law is equal for everyone.”
Recently in a press conference in Srinagar, Rath had said, “Everybody including the VIPs must follow the traffic rules. I won’t tolerate the norm violation at all.”
Asked about the allegations regarding traffic signals being put on blinker mode during VIP movement, the IGP said, “We have put an end to such kind of system in Jammu but keeping in view of the security situation in Srinagar, I won’t take any step which would end up by creating problems to IGP Kashmir.”
He said that such things can’t be avoided in view of the security status of Srinagar but the violation of norms won’t be tolerated at all.
