Meanwhile, Sukkur City ASP took action against one-wheeling, running motorcycles without silencers and pre-teen motorcyclists on Monday night and arrested more than 100 minor motorcyclists. However, all of them were released shortly after their elders assured the police that they will never allow them to ride.
The police also arrested some people for driving motorcycles without silencers. The SSP warned that action will now also be taken against the auto-mechanics involved in alteration of the motorcycles. He said the Sindh IG has zero tolerance for one-wheeling, silencer-less motorcycles and minor motorcyclists and, therefore, stern action will be taken against the violators.
