Traffic police officials who had been suspended over negligence in duties on Monday staged a protest outside police headquarters and blocked the road.
According to details, 41 traffic police officials had been removed from their posts because of negligence in duties. They blocked the road in protest and demanded restoration of their positions. As the queues of vehicles got longer and longer, police and traffic police officials arrived on the scene and removed the barriers. The protestors had talks with Traffic DIG but their demands weren’t met.
The traffic police officials said that when the court demanded answers about heavy traffic in the city from the higher officials, they simply dismissed the officials posted at three of the check-posts while many of them were on holiday.
