Jajpur: An on-duty Chandikhol Traffic Inspector suffered grievous injuries as she faced stone pelting during a regular inspection of vehicles at Mansamara Chaka of Chandikhol.
This shocking incident occurred on Tuesday night. Chandikhol Traffic Inspector Bijayini Malla endured head injuries due to the stoning incident. She was rushed to Badachana Hospital where she received six stitches on her forehead.
Malla has reportedly filed a complaint regarding the occurrence at Badachana Police Station and a probe has been initiated. Two suspects were taken into custody and are being interrogated in this matter.
The new Motor Vehicles Act (2019) was implemented nation-wide from September 1 and there were multiple reports of public outbursts regarding the lofty fines. But this case of stone-pelting on a traffic inspector has hit a new low.
