Four roadside vendors have been booked under security cases for encroaching on footpaths around the city.

Story so far: The security cases have been booked against repeat offenders as the vendors endangered pedestriansโ€™ lives. In these cases, the offender is obligated to pay the security and is instructed not to repeat the offence.

  • Earlier, cases were booked under IPC Section 283 which enumerates danger or obstruction in a public way or line of navigation.
  • Now, however, senior officials have been prompted to book a security case against repeat offenders.

Penalty: The four cases booked yesterday demanded heavy fines from each of the offenders. Chickpet traffic police have taken 1 lakh each from two vendors in the area. Magadi Road traffic police took a bond on the vendorโ€™s two-wheeler while Jayanagar traffic police issued a warning to the fourth offender.
