Traffic cop fined for wrong parking

ANI  |  Hyderabad (Telangana) [India] 

In an unusual turn of events, a top traffic police official here got a taste of his own medicine when he was fined by his team for flouting traffic rules.

Anil Kumar, the Additional Commissioner of Traffic Police, was fined for allegedly parking his car in the no-parking zone near the Mahankali Traffic police station.

"I was on a visit to Makankali Traffic Police Station in the afternoon of November 15 and it was not in my notice that my driver has parked my vehicle in the no-parking zone, as soon as it came to my notice after a person tweeted the picture of my vehicle parked at No Parking," Kumar told ANI.

The incident actually came to light after some people tweeted the photograph of the vehicle, asking the traffic officials if they would fine their top boss for violating rules.

"Immediately I informed my officials to issue a fine on my vehicle and I asked my driver to pay for it. A fine of Rs 235 was imposed for wrong parking and was immediately paid," claimed Kumar.
