Srinagar, Nov 6: A Court here on Saturday sought report from police over detention of two wheelers in the summer capital.

The Court directed the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Srinagar “to call the report from all the police stations within the district” regarding detention of bikes and submit compliance report within next ten days.

The Court of Additional Special Mobile Magistrate (Traffic) Srinagar presided over by Shabir Ahmad Malik issued the directions after an applicant moved an application, pleading “illegal detention of two wheelers by Police in Srinagar.”

The Court observed that the applicant Naveed Bukhtiyar who claims to be a social activist has moved application, pleading that “from last one month, Jammu and Kashmir Police has been detailing two wheelers illegally in violation of the provision of the Motor Vehicle Act and thereafter releasing the same by exercising the power of Mobile Magistrate/Traffic Judge (sic).”

The Court observed that the applicant has further pleaded “the illegal action of the non- applicants has not only caused humiliation, mental agony but also taken away people’s fundamental rights.”

The Court added the applicant has submitted that “he was the victim of illegal act of the respondent as his vehicle was also detained illegally and unlawfully.”

The court said that the issue requires the indulgence of this court as the “allegations are very serious in nature.”

“SSP Srinagar is directed to call the report from Police stations within district Srinagar regarding the issue and submit the compliance report before this court within a period of ten days,” the court said.
