    The constable says that he mistakenly wrote ‘not wearing helmet, instead of writing not using seat belt.

The constable has written motorcycle in the challan, but other details such as registration number are correct.

    This is not the first time Police issuing an irrelevant challan. Previously, a motorcycle rider was fined for not wearing seatbelt in Goa. In this case, it looks like the constable made a clerical error, but it will be revealed after an investigation. According to rules, one must wear seatbelt while driving, but nowhere it is mentioned that the driver should wear a helmet.
