‘Beta your Papa has to pay for WRONG PARKING’
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Apr 29: Towing away of vehicles for wrong parking has been a regular scene on the busy Residency Road. But the same attempt by traffic cops Friday triggered an unusual scene when bumper of the car being towed away by crane cracked and the accused driver’s child rushed to the spot crying with a one-liner: You damaged our dear car, how will we get a new one.
The young boy accompanying his parents for shopping in the busy market, at once caught hold of the crane chain and started crying on the bonnet of their brand new car.
His cries made the passerby’s assemble even as the traffic cops started consoling him.
But the boy was reluctant that the vehicle shouldn’t be taken away while his parents could be seen arguing with the cops that why the car was damaged.
In the meantime, the cops are understood to have called their higher-ups who didn’t allow the car to go free without being towed away for fine. And so the car, as usual, was whisked away to Traffic Police Office at Polo-View.
But then it was not a routine Challan. Sources said SP, Traffic, Maqsood-Uz-Zaman had already been apprised of the boy crying episode.
The SP at once called the child and his parents to his office chambers. But there it was more of a humble teacher than a senior cop talking to the chap in tears.
Zaman, as per insiders, told the boy that his father’s car was towed away for offence of wrong parking.
“Beta your Papa had parked the vehicle at a wrong place and it was causing inconvenience to others. If we won’t tow away such lot how will the traffic flow?” sources quoted Zamam of having asked the child with an intention that he doesn’t grow up with any negative image of the men in Khaki.
After this, the family paid the fine. But then they, particularly the boy spoke of damages to the bumper. And this was when the SP went in to a fix and finally assisted them in getting the car repaired.
But not all are lucky to get such assistance. While towing away of wrongly parked cabs is a routine, so are damages, mostly to bumpers which crack by the hooking.
