Last week, two videos surfaced on social media wherein the bikers along with a pillion were seen enjoying a ride on the prohibited stretch of the bridge. Vigilant citizens immediately demanded action against these persons for violating traffic rules.
Of the three persons, two were identified as Bollywood choreographer and film personality Remo D’Souza and fellow choreographer Salman Y Khan.
Taking note of the public outcry on social media over the 21 and 32-second clips, police began the process of tracing the two-wheelers. On Thursday, they found the bikes.
“Thanks #Goa for bringing traffic violations to notice. Recently two bikers were seen riding on Atal Setu where entry is restricted. SP Traffic Dinraj Govekar took cognisance and not only identified and impounded the bikes, but has summoned riders for legal action. #goapolice,” DGP Mukesh Kumar Meena tweeted.
Speaking to TOI, the traffic SP said that they have called D’Souza and Khan to the traffic police cell in Panaji.
The state government has prohibited the entry of two and three-wheelers on Atal Setu.
