The commuters and drivers have agreed for the fact that the already established “extortion points” have suddenly disappeared & all Credit goes to newly appointed IG traffic Basant Rath.
A truck driver hailing from Jammu, who has been driving on the highway from the past several years, said that he was surprised to see that no traffic cop was visible on specific spots to demand money. “It did not matter if you had all the necessary documents or if you were following the traffic rules, some officers used to exhort money at these points,” he said.
