Peshawar, January 24

The traffic police authorities in this city of Pakistan on Thursday apologised to the Sikh community after a Sikh motorcyclist was “mistakenly” issued a challan for not wearing a helmet.

A traffic warden had on Tuesday issued the challan to the Sikh youth riding the motorcycle for not using the helmet.

A spokesman of the traffic police said the youth was “mistakenly” challaned by the warden.

He said the authorities had tendered an apology to a delegation of the Sikh community, who brought the issue to their notice.

Sikhs are exempted from the use of helmet while riding motorcycles, the spokesman said.

The provincial legislature in northwest Pakistan is likely to debate the issue. PTI
