A joint team of the SDM, Mohali, Jagdeep Sehgal, and the DSP, Cyber Crime, today raided the office of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) and the Sector 82 driving test track and arrested four touts, who used to allegedly take money from people to get their work done.

The four suspects have been identified as Taranjit Singh, Manish Kumar, Harjinder Singh and Yashpal Sharma. Nearly 100 licences, registration certificates (RCs), files, mobiles and a laptop were recovered from them and legal proceedings initiated.

Disclosing this, Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Komal Mittal said the district administration was receiving complaints that some people were using the RTA office and the Sector 82 track and were taking money from people for getting their work done.

She said on the directions of Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan, a team was formed and four persons were arrested by raiding the compound near the RTA office and Sector 82 track.

Mittal said the government was committed to providing a "clean and transparent service environment" to people and if any government employee took bribe for work or any person took money from people for getting work done, strict action would be taken.
