While the challan features a photo of a two-wheeler, the vehicle category mentioned in it is a ‘motor car’, as per the challan image shared by NDTV. Even though it is clear that the challan was issued for incorrect reasons, Bahadur Singh Parihar has to wait for the conclusion of the Lok Sabha elections 2024 to resolve the issue. After receiving the penalty, Singh raised the matter with police officials. However, the police said they could look into the matter after the general elections.
