Odisha: Challan Against Truck Driver & Helper For Not Wearing Helmet Goes Viral
Jajpur: A truck driver and his helper, who were earlier fined for not wearing helmets in Odisha’s Jajpur district, are back in news again after a photo of the challan went viral on social media recently.
According to sources, police intercepted the truck near Chandikhole Chhak on July 27, 2020, as a part of COVID-19 norms enforcement as driver Prakash Pani was allegedly not wearing the mask properly.
An argument ensued between the truck driver and the police thereafter. Following this, the police allegedly issued a challan of Rs 1,000 against the driver and the helper for ‘riding without helmets by both driver and pillion’.
