– Zila Parishad Chairman is not authorized to use Orange Light on his vehicle : DTO
Mukerian: The Mukerian Police investigating further into the case of accident near village Malkowal Patial on Mukerian Talwara road have instructed the authorities of Zila Parishad Hoshiarpur to provide information about the driver of the Ambassador car which has been allotted to the Chairman of Zila Parishad Sarabjot Singh Saabi. The Police have also sought the documents of the car including Log book of the car.
Notably, the above said Ambassador car of Chairman of Zila Parishad and District President of Youth Akali Dal, Sarabjot Singh Saabi crushed a bike rider to death near village Malkowal Patial on Mukerian Talwara road. The then driver of the car fled away from the spot along with the documents of the car. The Police haven’t found any documents in the car and initially lodged an FIR against an unknown person under section 304 (A), 279 and 427 of IPC against unknown driver of the ambassador car. Now, the Police have been investigating further in order to reach out to the car driver.
On the other hand, eyewitnesses say that the car was driven by Zila Parsihad Chairman himself and the Police have been deliberately shielding him.
Coming to another interesting fact, eyewitnesses say that the car was bearing an Orange Light at the time of accident but later it was removed. This could be a fact because the Chairman used to use the Orange Light on his car. On the occasion of Independence Day, a photograph of the same car was clicked at Arya School Mukerian where the Chairman participated as the chief guest in the celebrations of Independence Day. Then, the car was bearing the Orange light.
When we consulted DTO Hoshiarpur, Mr. Darbara Singh about the usage of Orange Light used by Chairman of Zila Parishad on his car, he said that the Chairman of Zila Parishad has not been authorized to use the Orange Light. He said that if Sarabjot Singh Saabi has been using it, he would investigate into the matter whether he has some special permissions.
