NEW DELHI: After removing barricades around the US embassy, curtailing privileges of US diplomats and expelling one diplomat in retaliation over the Devyani Khobragade case, the authorities have now asked Delhi cops to keep a close eye on the cars of the American embassy with the registration number 77 CD.
Since Thursday, the city traffic police has booked as many as 10 cars of the US embassy for various traffic violations.
Violations include wrong parking, tinted glasses and ignoring traffic orders.
In fact, five cars have been booked for wrong parking and four for tinted glasses.
The traffic police have reportedly been told to show no leniency to any traffic violations by the US embassy vehicles. In case of drunken driving, there will be stiffer penalties and fines.
