Guj: Hardik slapped with Rs 600 fine for traffic violations

Ahmedabad, Aug 10 (PTI) Traffic police in Ahmedabad

today slapped a fine on Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik

Patel for having black-tinted film on his car's windows, an

official said.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Akash Patel

said that, in addition, the leader's driver did not have his

seat belt on while driving the car.

"When his SUV entered the premises (of the police

commissionerate), on duty policemen noticed black-tinted film

on the car windows. Further, his driver was also not wearing a

seat-belt. We have slapped a fine of Rs 600 for the two

violations under the Motor Vehicle Act and removed the black

film," said Patel.

Patel was fined inside the premises of the police

commissioner's office in the city's Shahibaug area when the

former had come to speak to authorities about non-allocation

of a place for a fast from August 25 in connection with the

Patidar quota demand.

Patel had, earlier, announced that he would sit on an

indefinite fast in the Nikol area from August 25 but the plan

had to be nixed as the plot is now a parking lot.
