GHMC Staff

HYDERABAD: Heated arguments took place between GHMC staff and traffic police near the Garden Restaurant in Secunderabad on Monday after the former kept their drilling material on the road leading to traffic snarls. According to traffic police, the GHMC staff went to demolish the restaurant to make way for metro rail works around 1.30 p.m.

Traffic came to a standstill after they left the drilling material right in the middle of the road. Some commuters complained at the traffic control room prompting the cops to direct the GHMC staff to remove the material from the road. However, the GHMC staff picked up an argument with the police. As they refused to budge, the police pushed them aside and cleared the road. The civic staff then staged a protest accusing the police of assaulting and obstructing ‘government servants from discharging their duties.’ Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Jitender confirmed the incident but said the GHMC staff had tried to create traffic snarls. The issue was later amicably resolved.
