BENGALURU: The High Grounds police seized a 2013 model Porsche and booked the driver for 22 violations on Tuesday. The vehicle  bears a Puducherry registration number and is registered to PRIST University, Chennai.

It all began around 9.30 pm when the car was spotted zooming in a reckless manner breaking a one-way rule, near Cantonment railway station. Traffic Sub-inspector T R Srinivas, who was manning traffic at the Cantonment underbridge, signalled to the vehicle to stop.

However, the driver drove right past Srinivas, almost knocking him down, and gesturing obscenely.

Noticing that the vehicle was going towards Balekundri Circle, Srinivas alerted the traffic police closeby. As the car sped  towards Infantry Road, four policemen put up barricades on the road and finally managed to stop the vehicle.

They seized the Porsche, took the driver into custody and slapped a fine of Rs 4,000.

Police said the driver claimed to be a car dealer and had come to Bengaluru to deliver the car to the owner. ssssssBut the traffic police found that the vehicle had no documents.

“He had no driving licence, there was no copy of the registration or insurance documents and no proof to show that the tax was paid up to date,” a police officer said.

“The driver was acting very suspiciously and we are looking into the possibility of the vehicle having been stolen,” a police official said.

HEEDING THE CALL OF DUTY

  • In July, Srinivas fined a local politician, Shivarame Gowda, for violating parking rules. He was assaulted by the politician
  • In July, he booked the official drivers of two Cabinet ministers for talking on the phone while driving
  • In June, Srinivas chased and caught  three luxury cars on Race Course Road and booked cases against the drivers, all youths
