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 pedestrians’ 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 vendor’s two-wheeler while Jayanagar traffic police issued a warning to the fourth offender.
