Traffic Police will not again capture or book drivers violating the one way rule, the Sindh government said on Friday, just weeks after police launched a crackdown against traffic law offenders in Karachi.
Prior this month, Karachi police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon had started a city-wide operation against traffic law offenders driving the wrong path on Karachi’s one way routs. From that point forward, several drivers have been captured and booked under Section 279nthe Pakistan Penal Code for violating the one way direction rule.
Now, the Chief Ministers law advisor Murtaza Wahab has said that the Sindh government had not been taken into certainty about the issue and in this manner, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah had been worried about the drive.
Wahab said that, beginning from February 1, traffic police in Karachi will never again capture violators of the one way rule or register reports (FIR) against them. He advised citizens to keep obeying the traffic rules.
The announcement came after Wahab earlier contacted the additional inspector-general (AIG) of police for Sindh over the issue of arrests.
AIG Sindh has given his assurance, the adviser said, adding that people also needed to heed traffic rules and regulations.
