Dharwad: Following repeated complaints from the public that auto-rickshaw drivers were charging excessive fares from them, even for a short ride, the traffic police in Dharwad conducted a unique operation on Wednesday morning to nab the drivers who were charging excessively for a ride.
The traffic police station staff went to the railway station to disguise themselves as passengers. As soon as the staff stepped out of the station, the autorickshaw drivers started asking them where to drop them off. The police started negotiating the fare for a destination, but the drivers did not reduce the price. Despite the police showing them the distance, as they stuck to the fare, the police revealed their identity and took the drivers and the vehicles to the station, where the vehicles were seized.
