Traffic police to act more soberly
Hetauda, April 2: Traffic Office is set to introduce new programme from upcoming New Year. Under the programme, traffic police will present themselves in a decent manner while checking all types of vehicles operating along the East-West Highway and Tribhuvan Highway from the first week of the New Year.
A 11-member all sides taskforce has been constituted under the premiership of Superintendant of Police (SP) at Makawanpur District Police Office Purna Chandra Joshi to make vehicle check-in process decent, practical, modern and service-oriented, said District Police Office.
The taskforce comprises representatives of Narayani Transport Entrepreneurs Association, Tempo Entrepreneurs Association and Makawanpur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Regional Traffic Police Office, social worker, vehicle drivers’ organization and district administration office.
The move came following feud between traffic police and truck driver. The incident took a nasty turn when Hetauda-base traffic cop ruthlessly thrashed Radheshyam Rayamajhi, driver of a truck heading towards Hetauda from Baharatpur of Chitwan few days ago.
Vehicle drivers have taken out to street and brought transport service to grinding halt since March 29 demanding action against the guilty traffic police. RSS
