Ludhiana: The embassies of Canada and Australia have been asking India for details of offences, including traffic violations, committed by those seeking long-term visa for these countries, Ludhiana Police said on Friday, while launching a campaign to check traffic violators.

Ludhiana police commissioner Rakesh Agrawal told Times of India that several embassies have contacted police in the last one year to share information. “We have details of offences committed by drivers in digital format. So we can share information with authorities concerned. Since several people from Ludhiana apply for citizenship or long-term visa for these two countries, we are using it as a tool to deter traffic rules,” Agrawal said.
