The Matunga traffi c di­vi­sion pe­nalised over 1,000 bik­ers and mo­torists for var­i­ous road in­frac­tions dur­ing a three- day drive this week.

Ma­jor­ity of the of­fend­ers ( 600) were bik­ers with­out a hel­met, while the other com­mon of­fence was il­le­gal park­ing ( 400), said Su­jata Patil, se­nior in­spec­tor, who co- or­di­nated the drive.

“The drive was car­ried out be­tween 11am and 2pm near Sion junc­tion. A few were pulled up for us­ing dark fi lms on win­dows and some for driv­ing with­out a seat belt. Some of those in­ter­cepted were ac­tivists of po­lit­i­cal par­ties and they were fi ned,” Patil said.

In­ter­est­ingly, 15 po­lice per­son­nel were among those caught for rid­ing with­out hel­mets. Some govern­ment em­ploy­ees were among those pe­nal­ized and some govern­ment ve­hi­cles were also stopped for us­ing dark fi lms.

The drive fol­lows a di­rec­tive by joint com­mis­sioner of po­lice Dr BK Upad­hyay to con­duct fre­quent drives and deal strictly with of­fend­ers. Days af­ter a woman was named for al­legedly at­tack­ing her sis­ter- in- law in a property dis­pute, she has claimed that she was confi ned by the lat­ter.

Preeti Sharma told dna that she has sub­mit­ted a writ­ten com­plaint to the po­lice, in which she stated that she was ear­lier pre­vented from vis­it­ing her fa­ther by her brother Tar­jin­dar Singh Me­htab and his wife Milli, who al­legedly has an eye on the fa­ther’s property. Fol­low­ing this, she had ap­proached the court and the court had di­rected the Azad Maidan po­lice to reg­is­ter a case.

The fa­ther has been suf­fer­ing from de­men­tia for the past seven years and she has al­leged that he is not be­ing pro­vided the nec­es­sary treat­ment. “Both my brother and sis­ter- in- law would make ex­cuses and not let me meet my fa­ther,” Sharma said on Satur­day.

dna re­ported on June 11 that on Sun­day, Milli, 42, com­plained that Sharma vis­ited the fourth fl oor house at Gu­rukripa build­ing, on Dr CH Street, and on Sharma’s in­sti­ga­tion some per­sons as­saulted her.

The fourth fl oor house was owned by the fa­ther, Jaswant, who also owned fl ats on the sec­ond and third fl oor of the build­ing. The prop­er­ties were ap­par­ently trans­ferred in the names of Tar­jin­dar and Milli in 2012. How­ever, Sharma has al­leged that they did not wit­ness her fa­ther sign the documents.
