Hyderabad: Cyberabad Police Commissioner Sandeep Shandilya on Friday asked vehicle owners to insure their vehicle within 15 days or else the vehicle would be seized till valid insurance certificate is produced by the owner.

In a press note, he said it has come to their notice that vehicles in the limits of Cyberabad Commissionerate were plying on the roads without third party insurance. Section 146 of the Motor Vehicle Act-1988 stipulates mandatory third party insurance coverage for all the vehicles in the country.

The Supreme Court committee on road safety, desired to periodically check vehicles to see whether vehicle owners have third party insurance cover. If it is not covered, the vehicle should be seized still the insurance certificate is provided by the owner, the note added.
