A man in India was fined for wearing a helmet while driving a car. Vishnu Sharma, the victim, now makes sure he wears a helmet whenever he drives his car.
Sharma witnessed the bizarre incident while he was driving down from Bharatpur, Rajasthan, to Agra on December 1, and was stopped at Chiksana police crossing for not wearing a helmet.
He said that his papers were in order and yet he was asked to pay Rs200 fine, citing the reason that he was not wearing his helmet while driving his van. “I showed them all documents, but they insisted on imposing fine. I had fastened the seat belt,” he said.
It is alleged that the constable mistakenly fined Sharma for not wearing a helmet instead of not using the seat belt.
The Rajasthan police said that the case will be investigated.
