Bhubaneshwar: Claiming that he was afraid of hefty fines for traffic rule violations, a man from Odisha’s Malkangiri district has come up with a bizarre idea to escape punitive measures. He has bought a horse not only to escape the traffic rule violation fines, but also to skip the high fuel bills.
According to reports, one Jatish Mistri has bought a horse at Rs 23, 000 for his daily travel. He now rides on the horseback for commuting to various places and dropping his kids at school.
Moreover, he also sometimes carries patients from his locality to the hospital on his horse. Jatish’s unique approach has drawn eyeballs of many in the village as well as nearby localities. Many villagers are seen stopping by the horse and clicking its pictures. When asked, Jatish expressed his immense relief over the fact that he no more has to worry about traffic rule violation or petrol expenses. He also believes that by this way, he is contributing to a less-polluted environment. Government collected a total amount of `1 crore as fine from traffic violators between September and November.
