Blue Beacon Removed from Vehicle; Case Registered Against Fake Number Plate in Shimla

Una/Shimla – Claiming to be a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) proved very costly for a man from Punjab. The traffic police issued a challan to the fake DSP and also removed the blue beacon from his vehicle.

According to information from the authorities, the Una traffic police had set up a check post near Bane-di-Hatti. During this operation, a vehicle (PB 08FF-0885) coming from Mubarikpur was stopped for investigation by a team led by Traffic In-Charge Chief Constable Paramjeet. When the police inquired about the blue beacon on the vehicle, the driver, Param Singh, a resident of New Govind Nagar Sodal Road, Jalandhar, falsely claimed to be a DSP from Punjab and began threatening the officers for stopping his car.

When the investigating officers requested his identity card, Param Singh started making excuses. Consequently, the police issued a challan for his vehicle and removed the blue beacon. DSP Amb Vasudha Sood has confirmed the incident and the actions taken by the traffic police.
