Srinagar, Nov 6: At least 20 school vans were seized by the Traffic Police for allegedly using LPG cylinders as fuel, officials said Tuesday adding that the drive would continue.
The SP Traffic Srinagar Haseeb Ur Rehman while appealing the educational institutions to give up the deadly use of LPG cylinders for running vehicles said strict action would be taken against the offenders.
The SP said there were also complaints pouring in about reckless driving and overloading in the school vans.
Moreover he said unless the vans get proper permission from the Regional Transport Officer (RTO), the cabs would not be allowed to ferry schoolchildren.
“All such vehicle owners have been directed to approach RTO Srinagar for getting relevant permits without which they will not be allowed to ply on City roads. Moreover they will not be allowed to ferry schoolchildren,” the SP said, in a handout.
He also appealed the parents to “discourage sending their children in such vehicles which resort to overloading because it is like playing with the lives of their children.”
