NGO contests challaning drive by police

Amritsar, September 15

The Minority People Welfare Society on Tuesday contested the challaning drive by the local police. They termed the challaning spree by the Punjab Police as the ‘government atrocity’ and urged the police authorities to firstly make people aware of the issue rather than just thrusting rules on them.

In a communique to DGP (Traffic), Satnam Singh Gill, president of the association, said the police did not bother to listen to the pleas of people. He pointed out that due to lockdown restrictions, many people could not apply for driving licence. He said the association had sent some suggestions to the police for improving the working of the police and to build confidence among the common citizen. He said the police should lay emphasis to make people of the traffic rules rather than stressing on challaning. — TNS
