In six separate incidents, four people died due to drink and drive cases. Following this, the city traffic police have been on high alert. In a bizarre incident, a student of Raghavendra College in Uppal, Bajar Rohit Goud and Vedula Sai Soman belonging to Karmanphat, were the reason behind the death of two people due to their inebriated condition. Both of them were booked under Section 304(2), 185 MV Act.


The judge ordered that they be put under judicial remand for 14 days. Meanwhile, both the accused have been sent to Chanchalguda jail, while the police have requested the court to hand over both of them for questioning for three days.


Traffic chief Vijayakumar held a meeting with higher officials from the traffic department on December 7, 2021, and laid out new guidelines with regards to drink and drive cases. Usually, the traffic police are active during the weekends. However, henceforth, they will do checks on all days. Traffic teams will be divided into two teams and deployed in all divisions in the city under all police stations.


The teams will not be conducting tests in one spot daily; and instead, they will look out for offenders at various spots in their zone. Also, a decision was taken to increase the number of checks and the number of times in the coming days.


However, all this seems good on paper. In reality, the traffic police are already overworked as they do full-time morning duty and also do bandobast duty. Given such a situation, doing drink and drive duty between 9 pm and 12 am will be humungous for the staff. So, the traffic chief has decided to take the help of police and some from reserved headquarters to deal with the issue.


Another major hurdle for traffic police is the formation of special WhatsApp groups, which have young boys from various areas constantly reporting to drunk drivers so that they can take alternate routes. Now, the police are trying to trace these WhatsApp groups as they can then arrest the admins of such groups.
