Chandigarh: In the wake of recent gang-rape of a paramedical student in Delhi, the Haryana government has issued directions for a crack down on vehicles violating norms in the state.

As per the direction, vehicles with tinted glasses and curtains will be challaned or impounded. Commercial vehicles plying in the state will have to keep interior lights on during night and off duty public buses will have to be parked with owners only.

The state government has issued directions to all Superintendents of Police and Secretaries of Regional Transport Authorities to undertake checking of vehicles under provisions of Motor Vehicles Act 1988.

She said that commercial vehicles violating contract carriage rules or conditions of permit would be challaned and their permits would be cancelled.

Police would verify antecedents of drivers and other staff deployed on public vehicles.

Buses and autos, driven by unverified staff would be cancelled, she said, adding that photographs of the drivers and conductor would be displayed inside the buses.
