Port Blair, Sep 26 (UNI) To check terrorist activities, the Andaman and Nicobar Police have banned use of non-transparent screens in vehicles in the far-flung islands.
Police have advised islanders to replace non-transparent screens from glass of wind screen and rear window with transparent screens as it was violation of Rule 100 of the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1998.
''This step has been taken to check any kind of terrorist activities as well as other immoral activities,'' Superintendent of Police (Traffic) of Andaman and Nicobar islands Karunakaran told UNI today.
The traffic unit of the Andaman and Nicobar Police, quoting the MV Section, further said glass of the wind screen and rear window of every motor vehicle should be such that the visual transmission of the light was not less than 70 per cent.
There were also reports in the local media recently about growing number of immoral activities inside cars having non-transparent screens in Andaman.
