Though it can be overwhelming for an individual to stand against this kind of treatment, I believe this is where teamwork can help all. And what better place than T-BHP for us to get together and assist each other.
Thanks - Would listing registration number of such offenders on a thread be a good start? I guess, i'm getting optimistic about expecting some cop to come here and read this and take some action.

Indeed good find! The article states that any authorized person on behalf of the state govt should inspect. In my case, both the vehicles were available at the police station for inspection. Nobody bothered to inspect but only told me that both the vehicles will be seized if an FIR is registered.

If only we had ways of influencing through our user councils - we could attempt changing this to not incovene people where nobody is injured.

I think they used intidimation tactics on you, if you have the sccoter details you can still file an FIR with the help of your lawyer and involve that traffic wardens name also.
Dadu Sir, yes - I could have filed an FIR that but didn't tread that path for want of a vehicle to commute.

I'm tabling this to the larger audience so that ideas and suggestions emerge and we find ways of ensuring that these things do not happen to others.
