Mysuru: Unable to recover the fine amount of Rs 20100 against a mammoth 201 traffic violation cases against a biker, the Siddarth Nagar traffic police have finally decided to auction his bike to recover dues, in a rare incident.
Roshan Ali, a resident of Rajiv Nagar, labourer by profession had purchased a bike from someone and failed to transfer the vehicle documents to his name. Riding freely without fear, Roshan Ali had 201 traffic violation cases booked against him over a year-and-a-half period. Luck ran out for Roshan Ali on October 19 as traffic police finally trapped him on Mirza Road during routine checks. When police checked his antecedents they found several traffic violation cases against him including over speeding, treble riding, jumping traffic signals, riding without helmet, parking in restricted areas, using mobile phone while riding and many more.
Police had charged Rs 100 for each offence which totalled to Rs 20,100 for a total of 201 cases. They confiscated his bike and asked him to have released the same after paying the fines due.
However, Roshan Ali has not made any effort to pick his bike and the police have finally decided to auction his bike. They hope to recover Rs 10000 by auction, which is the estimated cost of Bajaj Platinum bike after all the high drama.
