JAMMU, Sept 14: In a late night action intended to defuse tension that erupted between traffic police and the transport operators during the day, DIG Traffic, Shakeel Beigh attached traffic inspector Zamroodh Singh. Following this swift action, the strike call given by the transporters for tomorrow was immediately called off. The decision to this effect was taken by drivers union after a detailed meeting with DIG. President of all Routes/Union participated in the meeting and called off -strike after getting assurance from concerned authorities that action would be taken against the erring cops.
Earlier in the evening, Bus operators whose buses are plying on Jammu-Kathua route had decided to go on strike from tomorrow in protest against alleged misbehavior and corruption by traffic police cops.
The decision was taken in an emergency meeting of Jammu-Kathua bus operators and passengers transport union chaired by Vice-Chairman of All Passengers group namely Prakash Singh in the late hours today. He said that all passenger vehicles including Jammu-Kathua buses will not ply from tomorrow till the time the traffic police does not mend its ways. Prakash said that the decision is unanimous and applies to all the operators.
The trouble erupted earlier today when the vehicular movement remained paralyzed in Bikram Chowk area for hours together following a scuffle between matador drivers and traffic police cops. Matador drivers and other transporters parked their vehicles on roads, in protest against traffic police. They raised anti-traffic police slogans for their alleged corruption in the shape of entry fees.
Leveling allegations, they said that traffic cop demanded entry fee which led to scuffle. Eyewitnesses said that episode took place in early hours near Amar Singh club when traffic police inspector Zamroodh Singh challaned an R.S.Pura bound matador bearing registration number JK02H/4455 for plying without permit and rash driving.
Following the challan, the driver of the vehicle namely Kuldeep Singh entered into the brawl with traffic inspector. Soon, other drivers joined their counterparts and held protest demonstration against police, demanding transfer of traffic inspector. They parked their vehicles on National Highway at Bikram Chowk which caused traffic jam. The same was resumed, following interference of SHO Gandhi Nagar Gurmeet Singh and SDPO Gandhi Nagar Mukesh Kakkar who streamlined traffic movement. Traffic Inspector Zamroodh Singh when contacted said that if challan is corruption, then he is ready to face the law. However, a senior officer of traffic police termed the drivers move as a well hatched conspiracy. He said that election of union is in offing and this move helps to mobilize support of drivers. He also refuted allegation of corruption, saying for what reason drivers pay entry fees (hafta) to traffic cop.
