HYDERABAD: For the first time in the state’s history, acting upon cases registered in the wake of enforcement against drunk driving in the city, a local court suspended, for lifetime, driving licence of a motorist. He was reportedly found indulging in offence despite earlier actions against him. The court also suspended licenses of 48 others for repeated violations. 

Between November 6 and 10, as many as 539 chargesheets were filed against the nabbed drunken drivers. They were produced in the 3rd and 4th Metropolitan Magistrate Court, Erramanzil, Hyderabad. All the arrested persons were sent to Chanchalguda central prison. As many as 17 licences were suspended temporarily. A fine of `11.48 lakh was also imposed on them. 

Persons caught and convicted in drunk driving cases are likely to face difficulties in securing government jobs, passport and visa clearance. The violators will be sent for counselling at the Traffic Training Institute at Goshamahal, and Begumpet. Joint commissioner (traffic) Dr V Ravinder said around 539 persons were charge-sheeted in the 3rd and 4th metropolitan magistrate courts after they were caught repeatedly against drunk driving under various police station limits in the city.
