"I was getting late as I had to take my 4-month-old son to a doctor but the cop kept holding my car for some reason. After I had a heated discussion with him, he, to my surprise, challaned me for not wearing a helmet. This is ridiculous. I never knew I had to don a helmet while driving a car," Shailender was quoted as saying in the daily's report.

Shivraj Singh, the traffic cop said that it was just a technical mistake and instead of issuing a challan for talking on mobile, it was issued for not wearing a helmet by mistake.

The aggrieved later approached the senior superintendent of police (SSP), DC Dubey who has said that if the incident is true then appropriate action will be taken and thus, has ordered an enquiry into the matter.
