Kudos for Assam traffic policemen who fined BJP’s legislator for traffic violation
Assam police felicitated traffic police officials who had fined the BJP’s Duliajan legislator Terosh Gowala for a traffic violation, despite the MLA creating a scene.
The additional director-general of police (law and order), Assam, G.P. Singh, appreciated the traffic police personnel and posted a picture with Raj Kishore Das and Bishnu Borah on his Twitter handle. “Complimented the traffic staff of Chandmari PS for exemplary display of duty under trying circumstances. God bless @assampolice.”
The netizens on social media hailed the move of Assam police, but in the evening the tweet had been removed.
Gowala on Tuesday had created a controversy after he allegedly verbally abused a traffic police official who fixed a wheel clamp on his vehicle parked illegally in a “no-parking zone” near the PWD chief engineer’s office at Chandmari here.
A source in Chandmari police station told The Telegraph that Singh visited the police station to congratulate and encourage the police personnel for their duty.
A non-FIR case was registered by the traffic police but no separate case was lodged by the traffic personnel against Gowala for the verbal abuse and preventing them from doing their official duty.
The traffic policeman on duty had said Gowala’s SUV was parked in the no-parking area. “After I fixed the wheel clamp, three men, including the legislator, started hurling abuses at me. He said, ‘Don’t you know whose vehicle this is?’” the official said.
