BENGALURU: K K Paulose, a retired advocate and a resident of HSR Layout had a horrid experience on Sunday due to the vehicle ban.  Paulose, a heart patient, narrated his ordeal.

“On Saturday, when I saw news about the ban, I wrote letters to authorities, trying to question the veracity of the ban. According to Article 19 of the Constitution, no authority has the right to stop people from travelling in their vehicles. I am a heart patient, and have recently undergone an angioplasty.

On Sunday, I came back from Koramangala and needed to get a few medical files to go to Narayana Hrudayala from my residence in the second sector. When we neared  HSR Layout, the police on duty did not allow us inside. I tried speaking to the police official on duty and explained to him about my condition. However, he did not budge. Finally, I asked my son to park the car outside, while I went to get the files. However, on the way, I decided to go to the HSR Layout Police Station, where I filed a complaint against the ban. From there, I was made to run from pillar to post, as the lady in charge said I have to speak to higher authority. Later, I met a police officer who questioned the veracity of my heart condition. However, when Express contacted the HSR Layout Police Station, the official said that no complaint was registered in this regard.
