Una: The car of Delhi MLA was booked for violation of rules on Wednesday when a beacon light on the car was being used to clear way when it got stranded in a traffic jam in the area.

Initially the police officials geared to clear the blockade as local transporter unions had called a bandh. But upon suspicion, the police checked the papers of the VIP car with flashing red beacon light and discovered that the MLA was not present in the car.

The car no ‘DL3C BS9999’ belongs to the Congress MLA from Timarpur constituency Surendra Pal.

Confirming the matter, ASP KG Kapoor said, “We are investigating the case. We have charged the penalty.”

As per the rules, an MLA cannot use the beacon light in other states and the light has to be covered if the entitled person is not present in the vehicle.
