IBN7 impact: Delhi Police seeks copy of sting report on illegal buses

New Delhi: The Delhi Police was quick to act on Friday after CNN-IBN's sister channel IBN7 aired its exclusive report on illegal buses plying in the city right under the noses of the security officials. The police sought a copy of the CD of the report.

The report had revealed how corrupt transport officials in connivance with policemen allowed these illegal buses to ply on the roads. The report assumes significance as the 23-year-old Delhi braveheart had died after being brutally raped in one such illegal bus on December 16, 2012.

Following protests, the Delhi Police had assured a crackdown on these buses.

However, in the sting operation, an RTV owner can be heard confirming that the rules can be broken with just a few thousand rupees. In fact, an entry fee costs just Rs 5,500 rupees per month. And it takes just Rs 500 to bribe a transport official.
