Srinagar: Foreseeing the possibility of stunt biking during the Eid-ul-Fitr festival, Traffic Police Srinagar on Friday said they have formed special teams to monitor and stop any such activity.

Senior Superintendent of Police Traffic for Srinagar, Muzaffar Ahmad Shah told KNO that they have apprehensions that stunt biking may occur during the Eid festival and they have made pre-arrangements to curb any such occurrence.

“In view of the Eid festivities from tomorrow, there are apprehensions that stunts using four-wheelers and bikes by young boys may occur and to curb that we have constituted special teams,” he said.

SSP City Traffic said they have identified some of the areas where pre-arrangements have been made in collaboration with the district police.

In an appeal to parents, Shah said they should ensure that no vehicle is given to minors. “The parents should keep an eye on their young children so that they do not engage in stunt acts,” he said, adding. “Parents should not give an easy hand to their children on bikes or cars unless they are sure that their kids ride or drive sensibly and more importantly are eligible.”
