Police plan drive against illegal autos – Times of India

Chandigarh: The traffic police are planning to start a special drive to check illegal autos plying in the city. The moves comes after an auto driver was arrested for allegedly raping
raping a 35-year-old woman near the Haryana mini-secretariat in Sector 17 on Sunday late night.
Manisha Choudhary, SSP, traffic and security, said traffic police would hold a meeting with auto unions to reiterate instructions for all drivers to be followed. Police would then launch a special campaign to check all autos, the SSP said.
However, Harman Sidhu, a road activist and president of ArriveSafe, an NGO, said the recent incident shows the administration and police have not learnt any lessons from the past. He said he had suggested many steps to avoid such incidents after the gang-rape case of December 2017 but nothing was done.
Sidhu said all auto drivers should be profiled after checking their driving licence and records.
