Parked His Car At Home, Man Still Got 15 E-Challans In One Month

Arun Sharman, who is from Meerut Road Industrial Area, received 15 e-challans in August even though he has parked his vehicle at home.

The recent amendments made in the Motor Vehicle Act has led to an increase in the number of challans traffic rule violators received for the last month. However, among these cases, none is as intriguing as the case of a Ghaziabad resident. For the last one month, the man received a total of 15 challans. But the funny thing is, his car was parked at home all the time.

Arun Sharman, who is from Meerut Road Industrial Area, states that in August, he received 15 e-challans. Sharman was so shocked since, in that month, he didn’t even take out his vehicle.

According to a recent report, Sharma came to Delhi and Ghaziabad police to complain about the situation. Although the police made no considerable action, they directed him to hand in all the challans he received.

Arun Sharman, who is from Meerut Road Industrial Area, states that in August, he received 15 e-challans.

Sharma carried out an investigation himself and found out that somebody had been using a duplicate of his car’s number plate. This number plate was then captured by the cameras, thus that is why Arun Sharma, who is the vehicle number’s registered owner had been receiving the e-challans.

On Sept 30, Sharma decided that he would catch the culprit himself. He narrowed down the locations where the culprit’s vehicle was at to Akshardham temple. When he arrived at the location, to his surprise, there was a vehicle looking exactly like his with the same number plate. With the help of the police, the culprit was caught.

It is not that rare to read about people using fake number plates on the Indian roads to avoid receiving challans. Just recently, Debashis Sarkar, a reporter posted on his Twitter how he received an e-challan when he didn’t violate the regulations. The photos from the speeding cameras showed an over-speeding Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The vehicle’s number was the same as Sarkar’s 9-year-old Maruti Suzuki Alto.

While in these incidents, the culprits used fake number plates to just avoid getting caught, the practice posed as a much bigger risk as vehicles with fake number plates can be used for illegal purposes like smuggling of drugs, arms, etc. No one can identify the vehicle as well as its true purpose until they are caught.
