In a bizarre incident, a truck driver was fined Rs 1,000 for driving the vehicle without wearing a helmet in Odisha’s Ganjam district on Wednesday. The owner of the vehicle has been identified as Pramod Kumar Swain of G Jagganathpur in Ganjam.

The incident came to light when Swain visited the Regional Transport Office (RTO) to renew the permit to drive the truck. It was at the RTO that Swain got to know of the pending challan, which was issued on December 24 last year.

Swain said: “My truck permit had expired so I went to the RTO office to deposit my vehicle permit fees, but they told me that three fines are already in my name. I paid that amount and took the challan. When I saw the challan, it was imposed for not wearing a helmet.”
