Traffic offender invokes CMO to skip fine


Panaji, Nov 26: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday directed the police chief to probe a video in which an unidentified traffic offender is heard threatening a traffic policeman by taking the name of the Chief Minister's Office to avoid paying a fine.

A statement issued by the Chief Minister's Office said: "The Chief Minister has directed the (police) to investigate the matter involving an unknown person using the CMO's name frivolously to evade getting booked by traffic police."

The video, which went viral on Saturday, shows the person who is stopped by the traffic police for a minor offence bragging about his contacts in the CMO and warning the police that he will complain against them to the CMO.

In the video it is unclear whether the traffic offender eventually pays or not the Rs 100 fine the police had imposed on him.
