The traffic police filed a car theft complaint against a cab-driver with a private firm, who saw his car being towed away and replaced the clamped tyre with a stepney and drove off.

A report in The Times of India said that the incident happened on November 1 when the traffic police team found a Wagon R parked in the No Parking Zone and towed the car to Colaba Traffic Chowki where it was clamped and parked. Later, they found the car missing after which they filed a car theft complaint with the Azad Maidan police station.

The police then checked the CCTV footage of the traffic chowki to check the car’s registration number to find its owner. During the investigation, the police found the details of the owner and it was known that the car was bought on loan. The owner of the car, who works as a cab driver, was summoned to the police station where he paid the penalty for parking his vehicle in the no-parking zone. The police said that they will file a C-Summary (case neither true nor false) application soon.
