It was at about 1 pm when residents spotted a traffic cops around Julaina, an unusual sight in the locality. It is understood that the cops landed in the locality to discipline bikers, who flout law and drive in the locality without helmets.
A few bikers were stopped at Julaina red light and penalized, said an eyewitness, adding that some bikers were seen arguing with the cop not to fine them but with little success. A gramin seva driver was heard talking that from time to time traffic cops do arrive in the locality but they don’t go inside where many residents are seen flouting traffic law.
Residents lamented that rogue bikers are a big nuisance in the locality with minors even driving vehicles at high speed without wearing helmet. The move was welcomed by some residents who want traffic police to also start checking on Batla House and Abul Fazal Enclave road mounting pressure on rogue bikers.
Several accident cases too have surfaced by people driving vehicles in high speed. A few years ago a report had surfaced of how a biker driving rashly had hit a woman passerby in Abul Fazal Enclave. The accident was such that the woman hit the divider and was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared her brought dead.
