Tuesday, May 11, 2010
Disposal of the seized vehicles

Disposal of the seized vehicles — Held, it is a matter of common knowledge that as and when vehicles are seized and kept in various police stations, not only they occupy substantial space of the police stations but upon being kept in open, are also prone to fast natural decay on account of weather conditions — Even a good maintained vehicle loses its road worthiness if it is kept stationary in the police station for more than fifteen days — Apart from the above, it is also a matter of common knowledge that several valuable and costly parts of the said vehicles are either stolen or are cannibalised so that the vehicles become unworthy of being driven on road — To avoid all this, apart from the aforesaid directions issued hereinabove, we direct that all the State Governments/ Union Territories/Director Generals of Police shall ensure macro implementation of the statutory provisions and further direct that the activities of each and every police stations, especially with regard to disposal of the seized vehicles be taken care of by the Inspector General of Police of the concerned Division/Commissioner of Police of the concerned cities/Superintendent of Police of the concerned district — Further held, in case of any non-compliance is reported either by the petitioners or by any of the aggrieved party, erring officer would be dealt with iron hands.
