LAHORE:A rickshaw driver set his vehicle on fire allegedly frustrated over issuance of challans without grounds and torture in Raiwind City.

The victim alleged that whenever he would pass from here, a traffic warden would stop him without reason and issue fine tickets unreasonably. His income did not support for the payment of unjust dues. He complained that the warden not only ticketed him but also subjected him to torture.

A spokesperson for traffic police said that the patrolling officer Kamran had stopped the rickshaw driver from wrong parking. He was so frustrated over the intervention that he not only set his rickshaw on fire also attempted self-immolation. He added that no ticket was issued to him and warden saved his life by stopping him from self-immolation.

CTO Muntazir Mehdi took notice of the incident and said that the action would be taken against the warden if found guilty in an inquiry. He asked SP Sadar Asif Siddique to conduct an inquiry.
