RAJOURI June 13: The cops ‘in blue’’ were found missing as the worst traffic jam on Hospital Road Rajouri for about Six hours gave the people moments of tension and agony this evening. The cops on duty also disappeared on the entire route and the traffic jam started accumulating all along. Right from Khachar Ground up to Hospital Road hundreds of vehicles were trapped in the worst ever traffic jam.
Not even a single Traffic Police officer or constable was seen on the Road to regulate the traffic. Two ambulances coming from hospital Rod. and Rajouri side were also seen trapped in the traffic jam near Kheora. The people intending to make way for the trapped ambulances with patients were feeling helpless under such circumstances.
Later, some youth from a few vehicles came out and then played the role of Traffic cops and ensured the slow movement of vehicles. The public and commuters were seen cursing the Traffic cops for their absence from such critical areas and alleged that they have been perhaps deployed by the Government only for collecting Hafta, share booty and not for the general public to provide them relief.
It took about Five to six hours to clear the traffic jam to the people working voluntarily on this road. They felt that due to lack of coordination, insensitive attitude and supervision on the part of senior Traffic police officers, such frequent traffic jams are witnessed in Rajouri city.
