HC asks Odisha govt to release vehicles seized from lockdown violators

Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today directed the State government to release the vehicles seized for lockdown violations from the persons concerned.

In an order, the court said vehicles already seized shall be released by obtaining undertaking from the persons concerned mentioning that he/she shall not utilize the same any further. It further said such vehicle shall be released at least thrice without imposing fine and only on the undertaking.

“As it is for the complete lockdown situation, people of the State are also in serious misery and complete ban on movement of two-wheelers in absence of system making availability of essential commodities at the walkable distance will add further to the miseries of the people,” the court noted.

The order said such practice may continue at least till the State government comes up with proper guideline and mechanism for making available of useful commodities within walkable distance.
