Hyderabad: A 24-year-old Hyderabadi got an alternate bike for his recently stolen bike from the Tolichowki traffic police station.
According to B Vishnu Goud, a resident of Bansilalpet in Secunderabad, he along with his friend Bala Narasimha (17) was travelling on February 28 from Chilkur to Secunderabad on his Pulsar bike.
When they reached Langer Houz petrol bunk area at 10:30 pm, Tolichowki traffic police stopped them and subjected them to undergo blood alcohol test in which the biker found drunken and police seized his red colour bike (TS 10 EF 6828).
Later, they went to court, attended the counseling and paid the fine and on March 27 returned to the spot at Bapu Ghat Ramalayam Temple Ground where Vishnu Goud's seized vehicle was kept under police surveillance.
When he along with the police could not find the vehicle, the traffic police filed a complaint with the Langer Houz police and after registering a case they searched for the bike but in vain.
The Hans India had published a news item with the headline "Seized bike stolen from police station, cops clueless", on Friday highlighting the difficulties faced by the victim and the negligence in traffic police surveillance.
The same day, on April 5, Tolichowki traffic police reacted to the news item and took measures to solve the problem of the victim.
They called the victim to Ramkote, where second sales bikes were available in large number and purchased a blue colour Pulsar bike (TS 13 EE 0038) of the same model of 11/ 2015 manufacture for Rs 45,000 and handed over to him at 6:30 pm on April 5.
The victim said the Tolichowki traffic officials told him that vehicle transfer papers would be given to him on April 8.
The victim Vishnu Goud expressed happiness over getting the alternate bike of blue colour, in place of his favourite red colour bike and conveyed thanks to The Hans India team.
