The inspector general of police (traffic) in Jammu, Basant Rath, has seized a car of an IPS officer’s son after the latter almost barged his vehicle into his.
Rath, who is known as an upright officer, took to social networking site Facebook to narrate the incident: “I made a complaint today. A first. In personal capacity as the traffic chief. Please forgive my weak grammar. I’ll improve by March 2020.”
In the complaint to SHO Gandhinagar Sunil Singh, Rath wrote that Angad, who identified himself as IGP personnel (police headquarters) JP Singh's son, was driving his Audi car “backward on the main road in front of the police headquarters…He almost barged into my official vehicle.”
The IGP (traffic) added that when he asked Angad to give his car papers to the traffic police, the young man misbehaved with the officer and dropped names of his father and father-in-law, and started creating a scene.
On the other hand, Angad in his complaint to police said his Audi car was forcibly taken away by a person in civilian dress.
The police officer has asked the SHO to take appropriate action against Angad. The SHO didn’t provide any information about the case.
