5 au­tomen held ev­ery week for rigged me­ters

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

On an av­er­age, at least five auto drivers, across the eastern and western sub­urbs, are booked ev­ery week for rigged elec­tronic me­ters, ac­cord­ing to lat­est sta­tis­tics re­leased by the state trans­port de­part­ment, re­ports Somit Sen.

Alarmed by the high num­ber of cases, com­muter rights ac­tivists said this is an in­di­ca­tor that ‘ghoda’ me­ters are back. Sta­tis­tics show that nearly 2,000 auto drivers were booked for var­i­ous of­fences, of which 107 were caught hav­ing tam­pered me­ters in the past five months.
