Pune police won the internet with a witty remark to a tweet on Tuesday. A user had tagged the police department in a picture of a bike taken from behind that had an interesting sticker on the number plate.
Two riders are seen riding the vehicle with a crown sticker on the number plate, which is illegal.
The Pune police’s handle replied to the tweet, saying “His highness will unfortunately have to oblige us with a Challan soon!"
According to the Motor Vehicle Act, only the numbers should be displayed on the number plate of a vehicle.
The post was put up on Tuesday and has received about 601 retweets and over 3,900 likes since then.
People praised the wit and humour of the Pune police.
