Exclamation Chandigarh police to auction 'hundreds' of impounded cars

Good hunting ground for interested folks?

Unclaimed vehicles trouble cops, will be auctioned - The Times of India

CHANDIGARH: Facing trouble in keeping the rising number of unclaimed impounded vehicles at the police stations, Chandigarh police would auction hundreds of them in the coming days.

At Chandigarh traffic police lines, Sector 29, thousands of impounded vehicles occupy over an acre land. Police have started the auctioning and would build a recreational park after clearing the space.

"Some of these vehicles are parked since 2005. It has become difficult for us to manage their rush as no one has come to claim them. After auctioning these vehicles, a recreation park for the cops and a cemented parking lot will be built," said deputy superintendent of police (traffic) Vijay Kumar.

In most of the accident cases, people prefer to take the insurance claim, instead of damaged vehicles.

Besides, nearly 1,000 unclaimed vehicles, including four-wheelers, are lying unattended at 11 police stations in Chandigarh. In many cases, tyres and various spare parts of the vehicles have been stolen and some vehicles have also fallen apart rusting.

"It is the duty of police to ensure the safety of impounded vehicles, but looking at the number, it doesn't seem practically possible.," said a police official here. In such auctions, mainly scrap dealers come for the bidding.
