The Mundhwa traffic police division has been shifted to the premises where Hadapsar police chowky was located earlier. However, vehicles confiscated by the police for various traffic violations and taken to the local traffic police yard are rotting. A visit to the yard on Friday, and several times before revealed that around 70 vehicles were lying unattended with nobody to look after them.
The Hadapsar police station, which operated from a two-storeyed building was shifted to Gadital in Hadapsar 14 months ago. Now, vehicles confiscated for traffic rules violation in Hadapsar and Mundhwa area are being parked here. However, there is no police security to keep a check on the vehicles and their safety. When this
correspondent entered the premises, he found the main door open and no constable in the entire building.
Outside the building, some 70 vehicles were lying with one to look after them.
However, Inspector SK Dhumal from Mundhwa traffic police division denied that vehicles were lying unattended. “We have been using the premises for the the last seven months. Our division has a strength of 20 constables. Most of them control traffic and some sit on the first floor of the building.”
