Parking lots in the Capital will no longer remain the safe haven to hide stolen vehicles or the ones used for any anti-social activities.
Following Wednesday's explosion at the parking area outside the Delhi high court, Delhi traffic police on Thursday have started scanning city's all 300 odd parking lots to identify such vehicles. They will soon come out with an exhaustive list of vehicles that were either stolen or used for any criminal activities in or outside Delhi or unclaimed for long, said a senior traffic police officer.
Traffic police on Thursday scanned a total of 261 parking lots to identify the vehicles parked there for more than three days. They have found as many as 410 vehicles that were parked in the parking areas at least three days ago.
"After completing the scanning process by Friday, the data will be sent to the crime branch to match the registration numbers of these vehicles with the available database of stolen vehicles or vehicles used for any anti-social activities.
After this, we will toe away these vehicles from the parking areas and also trace the ones who owned the vehicles," said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).
Teams of traffic police went all over Delhi on Thursday to sensitise parking agents to be extra careful while letting vehicles to park.
Besides, the teams also sensitised authorities at taxi stands as well as TSR stands and halting points. A total of 284 taxi stands and 129 TSR stops have been covered, said officials.
