"When his SUV entered the premises (of the police commissionerate), on duty policemen noticed black-tinted film on the car windows. Further, his driver was also not wearing a seat-belt. We have slapped a fine of Rs 600 for the two violations under the Motor Vehicle Act and removed the black film," said Patel.
Patel was fined inside the premises of the police commissioner's office in the city's Shahibaug area when the former had come to speak to authorities about non-allocation of a place for a fast from August 25 in connection with the Patidar quota demand.
Patel had, earlier, announced that he would sit on an indefinite fast in the Nikol area from August 25 but the plan had to be nixed as the plot is now a parking lot.
