Cops book 11 errant riders in 24 hours on FC Road


PUNE: Wrong-side driving persisted unabated on Fergusson College Road after Tuesday’s fatal twist of fate, by which a 23-year-old pupil misplaced her life.

The Deccan Gymkhana police and traffic personnel have registered 11 cases in 24 hours against people stuck driving on the incorrect facet of the uni-directional street. At the moment, cars are only allowed to shuttle from Good Luck Chowk against Agriculture College Chowk.

According to senior inspector Deepak Lagad of the Deccan Gymkhana police station, they stuck 10 twowheeler riders violating the one-way rule on the FC Road on Wednesday and Thursday, whilst traffic police booked one rider.

The pressure used to be initiated within the aftermath of Tuesday’s twist of fate, by which a 23-yearold girl died after her good friend crashed his bike into a barricade opposite Wadeshwar restaurant whilst riding on the incorrect facet.


police on Tuesday had booked the motorcyclist, Hrushikesh Babar (25) of Raviwar Peth, under the stringent Section 304 (culpable homicide now not amounting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code, which attracts a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison. They have also invoked IPC section 279 (Rash and negligent driving) against Babar.


Babar used to be riding his motorcycle against Good Luck chowk from the Fergusson College primary gate round 2.45am on Tuesday, when he crashed into the safety barricade in front of Wadeshwar. Samruddhi Gursale (23), a Japanese language pupil riding pillion, fell from the motorcycle and died of head accidents on the spot. Babar, a photographer, has been admitted within the health center with fractures.


Lagad mentioned that police have registered all the first knowledge reviews (FIRs) under the section 279 right through the pressure on Wednesday and Thursday.


The pressure will proceed on both the roads — J M street and FC Road. “These motorists are not only risking their lives, but in addition lives of others,” Lagad mentioned.
