The gentleman deserves a standing round of applause for what he did. It takes guts to carry out something like that and a sort of anger that makes you forget the consequences. I know the feeling too well.

ACP KRISHNAMURTHY DRIVING AROUND IN KA-03 G-24 - you are a shame to the service you represent, the force you "serve", the country that seeks your services and all of us who contribute to your monthly payroll. Scum of the lowest order.

I'm quite surprised this thread has been so studiously avoided. I hope I run into ACP Krishnamurthy in Bangalore someday....red light runner.

I have forwarded the story through the contact section of the indian government website this morning. Not expecting anything to happen though. But keeping fingers crossed nevertheless.

A standing ovation from me to the gentleman. As Steer says - It takes guts to do what he did. I hope the ACP does get the punishment he deserves.

This guy sure has guts.... Can imagine how the officer would have felt after getting insulted like that. If he still doesn't change his old ways, he is &%$#.

Just read this story. Kudos to the gentleman who actually chased the ACP to tell him about the rule he just flaunted.

I knew a police officer who once said, "Rules to aam logon ke liye hote hain, humare liye nahi". I was too afraid to protest then.

I think in future, if a cop tries to stop me and ask me for details, I will atleast ask for his identity card. I do not like to hand over my keys or license information to a person whom I dont know and trust.

Bravo boy!

Steer, I know the anger that you are talking about. As I read this story, I remember my stupid self messing around with a police officer around 12 years back. Alright, not with an ACP but with a Police Inspector. Though successful that time, I don't think I'll do that again

In Pune, such sights are common !
Many VIP cars break signals,the roads are blocked or sometimes even an entire route is made signal free(No RED signals - so that the VIP goes through the route very smoothly...all junctions - 90 degree roads have red signal untill the VIP crosses over) ! Can you Imagine this ? I have myself been a witness to such a procession, and i was wondering - what the heck !!! at the cost of we people's time.....as if Our time has no value !!! I was very much p***** off after this incident...but what cd be done !

I think that's legal (the holding the signal part, depending upon the security the perticular (V)VIP has got.
and Can't help it either. e.g. however bad they are, we don't want to replace our legislators every week (think of the cost of elections).

I have just emailed Mr.Abdul Saleem IPS, Dy.Commissioner of Police
Lets see what happens.

Drifter


Dear sir,

On 3rd May 2006 at 4pm, ACP M. Krishnamurthy in Bangalore Traffic Police Tata Sumo Reg - KA-03-G-24 broke through a red light at junction which is called Prof.A.M. Dharmalingam Circle.

Upon this, a citizen followed him and asked him the reason for jumping the red light. To which he blatantly replied "For us there is no signal".

Who may i ask gave the traffic police permission to break traffic signals meant for our own safety. Upon further questioning the ACP sped off. This pathetic attitude of the cops is just appalling. What sort of example are the police setting? If they cant follow the rules, how can you expect a common man to stop at traffic lights?

I have been given your email address and telephone numbers from the bangalore traffic police website when i had written to them this afternoon.

http://www.bcp.gov.in

I demand appropriate action to be taken. Waiting for your reply.

Yours Faithfully,

Manish Sarser

Drifter, great to see that you are following it up quite actively.

However, you MUST have had mentioned source of your information, web-site link pointing to the blog. From the officer's point of view, there is no credibility associated with your mail, since it does not back up with any proof or, any material of substance. He might simply shot back (if he chooses to) to you asking about authenticity of your information and claim.
