Delhi Police is going to deal strictly with the people roaming by applying lemon-chilli or black cloth on the number plate of the vehicle.
New Delhi: The new order of the Delhi Traffic Police can become a problem for those who hang lemon-chillies or black tops on their vehicles to protect them from the evil eye.
Actually, it is observed many times that the numbers on the number plate are not visible properly due to hanging all these right above it, as a result, vehicles breaking any traffic rules or involved in any other incident neither get identified and nor do they get any invoices.
In such a situation, from now on, the Delhi Police is going to deal strictly with the people roaming by applying lemon-chilli or black cloth on the number plate of the vehicle.
IPS officer Dr. Muktesh Chander has shared the information about this new order on social media. While sharing a photo of a cab running with a number plate covered, he has also put a link to that song by writing the line 'Tum aise kahan tak chupge raja jaani' from an old film song on Twitter.
On this post of the IPS officer, some people have posted photos of some other similar vehicles in the reply. Responding to one such post, Dr Chander has written – Black pony tail can drive away ghosts, not the police.
The Police Commissioner has said that the police will also take action on these vehicles.
Some leading news portals have written, quoting Dr Chander, that with the help of special software, the police will be able to extract the numbers of even those vehicles which hang such things on the number plate, and the challan will be sent directly to their house.
Under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1989, there is a provision to pay a fine of up to Rs 5,000 for tampering with the number plate. For violation of this rule, the amount of fine will be doubled.
