I had parked my vehicle in a parking space near lavelle Road, Ashok Nagar. And I had taken the photograph of my bike being parked in a parking space only. By the evening when I returned my bike was taken away by traffic police toll away vehicle beside Bowring Institute St.marks road. I showed the pic of the parking to police saying it was rightly parked. Police agreed on not to print a receipt for non-parking which is Rs.1600 and instead asked me to pay the towing charges of Rs.650. Even after a lot of argument with cops, I was forced to pay the bribe to tow bike pickers. After paying fine I realised that even though on church street and museum road there is enough parking space made on the side of the road but the cops have put no parking signs and it is a huge income for them and my estimate of it being more than a lakh per day. Someone at the top needs to look at this issue especially in Ashok nagar area.
