Law student in Maruti WagonR fined for ‘not wearing helmet’

Shradha Das, a law understudy at National Law University Odisha (NLUO) got an e-challan for not wearing a cap while driving her vehicle. The challan was issued by the traffic police of the city to the woman driver. She later tweeted the picture of the challan to the Regional Transport Officer, Cuttack, Odisha.

The Cuttack Traffic Police issued the online challan to the lady yet when she checked the status of her vehicle on the web, she discovered that the challan is for “not wearing a protective cap”. The woman was driving a Maruti Suzuki WagonR at the time and the challan was sent to the vehicle number. The careful explanation behind issuing the challan in any case isn’t known.

Shradha then tweeted the image of the e-challan nearby the image of the WagonR that she was heading to the RTO, Cuttack. The Cuttack RTO acknowledged that the mistake and said that the right offense was not chosen in the drop-down menu when the concerned official was issuing the challan.
