Three Held for Violating ‘No Helmet, No Fuel’ Rule in Noida
Three men were arrested Tuesday, 11 June, for engaging in a scuffle with petrol pump staffers who refused to fill fuel in their motorcycle as they were not wearing helmets, officials said.
This is the first arrest made since the "No Helmet No Petrol" rule came into effect in Noida and Greater Noida on 1 June, prohibiting two-wheeler riders without helmet from getting fuel in a major bid to check road traffic violations.
"When the matter was reported, the police booked them under Section 151 in The Code Of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (Arrest to prevent the commission of cognizable offences ). Later City Magistrate Shailendra Mishra sent them to jail," the official said.
As many as 220 people have lost lives and 393 suffered injuries in 481 road accidents reported in Gautam Buddh Nagar between 1 January and 31 May this year, according to official data.
