Kushalnagar: The Kushalnagar JMFC Court has awarded a man one day punishment and has imposed a fine of Rs. 25,000 for allowing his minor daughter to ride a two-wheeler and causing an accident. The Court has also imposed a fine of Rs. 1,700 on the minor girl.
The man, who was awarded the punishment is Antony, a resident of Nanjarayapatna.
Details: On Jan. 6, an accident took place between a Royal Enfield bike ridden by one Sameer of Tyagatur and the Scooty, which was ridden by the minor girl near a petrol bunk at Dubare, following which Sameer had lodged a complaint at Kushalnagar Traffic Police Station.
The Police, who had registered a case, conducted investigation, came to know that the Scooty was indeed ridden by the minor girl and as the scooter was in the name of the minor girl’s father Antony, a case was registered against him and the Police had submitted a charge-sheet to the Court.
Kushalnagar JMFC Court Judge, who took up the hearing, found that Antony had given the Scooty for his minor daughter to ride, which had caused the accident and awarded him one day punishment and also imposed a fine of Rs. 25,000.
Good work done by Kushalnagar police, when will Mysuru police follow suit. Many times readers have pointed out that many underage children both boys and girls drive a two wheeler, there has been no action from local police. Children think that if they know cycling they can drive two wheeler. Visit any tutorials at 0600am , you will find a row of two wheelers parked which most of them are driven by children. RTO and local police wake up.
If such moves can happen at Bangalore, we can witness discipline and also less of accidents.
Can police target minors driving. This is rampant offlate.
