A court ordered a 16-year-old boy to learn traffic rules by helping traffic police in traffic regulation for 20 days, as a punishment.
The teenager, a resident of New Kundanpuri, was driving his I-20 on May 31, when he hit a two-wheeler being driven by sisters, Malika and Bhoomika, near Upkar Nagar Dashehra ground. The boy fled the scene while the girls suffered injuries. Their vehicle was also damaged.

Following a complaint from the father of the victims, division number four booked the accused under section 279 (rash driving), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) on June 7.

The court did not pass a harsh judgment on the matter, since the accused is a minor and a school-going student. To complete his punishment, the boy has been helping cops manage traffic at Jagraon Bridge. After the boy completes his term, the police will send a report to the court.

Additional deputy commissioner of police Gurdeep Singh said the boy has been regular for the past four days. He also mentioned that he is learning and helping traffic cops in traffic management.
