Hyderabad: A woman has accused a traffic police personnel from Cyberabad of mocking her when she objected to his alleged selectiveness in fining motorists. One of his colleagues misbehaved with her, alleged the woman.
According to the woman, she was travelling with a friend on a two-wheeler when they were stopped at Parvat Nagar chauraha, which comes under the jurisdiction of Madhapur traffic, on Friday?. They were handed a challan as the vehicle's number plate was partially broken.
In multiple Twitter posts, the woman said that they diligently paid the fine, accepting that the cop was doing his duty. However, she noticed that the policeman didn't issue any ticket to a boy who was riding a bike without a helmet.
"I questioned B Nagi Reddy, the traffic policeman with the mask, about why he let that biker go, and did not cut a challan. He told me because he had taken a picture of the number plate. I asked him to show it to me because he hadn't done that. He got enraged," she wrote.
The woman alleged that the cop later said he had taken the picture. "... he said that the cops at the bigger junction would have taken, so he didn’t take," read her Twitter post.
The woman said she then decided to take a picture of the policeman. However, one of Reddy's colleagues allegedly made a mocking face as she took the picture. The woman forwarded the pictures to the Cyberabad traffic police on their WhatsApp number.
The woman said she chose to raise the issue through social media after she didn't get a reply from the police. Cyberabad Deputy Commissioner (Traffic) Vijay Kumar said, “We don’t know anything about such misbehaviour by our official.”
