DC N Jayram and Commissioner of Police said may what come Autos without meters and permits will be seized. Today a meeting was held of the District administration and Auto Rickshaw Drivers and Owners Association after they protested yesterday. DC N Jayram and CoP S Ravi categorically stated that those auto rickshaws plying on city roads without permit or digital meters will not be spared and would be seized as per the provisions of law.
The members of the Auto association complained that they were being harassed for no reason. Police had provided enough time for the rickshaw drivers to update with all the legal requirements of their vehicle, before getting in action.
The commissioner of police said go and see the facebook page and see the heap of complaints about Autos. Taking a stand in favour of Auto Assocation, Belagavi North MLA Feroz Sait that rather than taking a harsh stand, let police warn those rickshaw drivers this time and release those vehicles. Do not slap heavy fines to those rickshaw drivers, MLA Said.
