NEW DELHI - Delhi Traffic Police officers chased and booked two motorcycle riders in south Delhi Tuesday for not wearing helmets. However, the two men landed behind bars after police discovered that they were riding stolen bikes.
The incident took place near Laxman Public School in south Delhi at 12.30 p.m. when traffic police officers were patrolling the area and asked the two motorcyclists to stop.
The two offenders did not bother to stop, prompting the traffic police personnel to chase them. Hearing the sirens, two civilians also joined in the chase, and caught one biker, a traffic police officer said.
