Kolkata: A car, bearing a number plate of
Lahore in Pakistan, parked in the no-parking zone in the busy
New Market area here has caused a flutter with the police on
the trail of the owner.

The car, a Toyota Land Cruiser with number plate L 992
WYZ and a sticker of Islamabad attached to it, was first
noticed by locals in front of the Bible Society of India in
the New Market area of central Kolkata last night.

The police after getting information broke into the
vehicle and seized the driving license, some documents, books
and utensils.

Alexander Henry Parcel of London, the supposed owner of
the car and a student of Anthropology in Oxford University,
possibly hired the car from Pakistan and came to India, police
said.

Initial investigation revealed that Parcel was looking
for an international driving license and passport needed to
travel across different countries.

The police is on a look out for the man.
