Cops of 8 states meet to tackle traffic not destined for Delhi

Top Delhi Police officers and their counterparts from neighbouring states discussed ways to divert non-Delhi destined goods traffic from the national capital and to check old petrol and diesel vehicles in an inter-state coordination meeting held here on Tuesday.

It was decided that effective diversion of non-destined goods traffic would be undertaken by the respective states of Haryana and UP within their borders so that they do not enter Delhi, a Delhi Police statement said.

Diesel vehicles older than 10 years and petrol vehicles older than 15 years are not permitted to ply in Delhi as per the directions of the Supreme Court and the National Green Tribunal.

The officers also agreed to sharing database of registered vehicles in Ghaziabad, Noida, Faridabad, Bahadurgarh, Jhajjar, Sonipat, among other places neighbouring Delhi, and information regarding stolen vehicles.

Joint action against interstate criminals by sharing information to curb smuggling of drugs and illegal firearms, and integrated checking on regular basis was also emphasised on during the meeting.

The meeting was attended by senior police officers from Delhi, UP, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.
