Shrimati, who is also the owner of the medical store, alleged that Naguri Traffic Police had singled out her vehicle for imposing the fine. None of the other vehicles parked got the ticket, she said.
Shrimati said she came to know about the fines due when the traffic police flagged down her scooter early last year. She was shocked to find that the vehicle had Rs 5,000 outstanding dues for parking in a “No Parking Zone.” Astonishingly, no notice for the fines imposed had been received until then, she said.
