"Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had Thursday warned young two-wheeler riders against indulging in irresponsible riding on Shab-e-Barat."
New Delhi, June 14 - Over 700 people were fined in the national capital for rash driving and performing stunts on the occasion of Shab-e-Barat on the intervening night of Friday-Saturday, police said.

The 732 tickets were issued to scooter and motorcycle riders who indulged in reckless driving, performing stunts, riding without a helmet or other traffic violations. In addition, 13 two-wheelers were also impounded, police said.

According to Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Muktesh Chander, police checkpoints were put up all over Delhi from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.

As bikers ride in large groups, when intercepted at checkpoints, some of them do manage to slip through. Therefore, police officers armed with video cameras were deployed at all check points this time to record the registration numbers of such riders, Chander told IANS.

We will now be able to send the challans to the homes of those who managed to escape, he added.
