BANGALORE: Syed Yousuf, a mechanic, was roaming around the city happily on the bike that was designed by himself. But, the unpleasant surprise came to him, when the Cubbon Park traffic police stopped him near the Park for riding a bike without registration number board. Also he was riding without wearing a helmet and a driving licence. The police noticing the altered bike were surprised but they were in no mood to let him go.
They seized the bike and have asked him to collect it only after paying the penalties for his offence. But Yousuf, who runs a garage near Arabic College in K G Halli, is disappointed that his bike is seized.
“Earlier, I have designed three altered bikes using parts of various bikes and have sold them for good price. I had designed the seized bike just three days ago and had plans to sell it. But, now the police have seized it before I could get the registration number,” he said.
“In fact, some of the cops have appreciated my work. But even they are legally bound to book me for the offence,” he added.
The Cubbon Park traffic police are also examining the vehicle to known its technical details to ascertain whether the vehicle is fit for use in city limits.
