HUBBALLI: Yamaraj was spotted at around 11:30 am near Chennamma Circle in Hubballi on today. Surprisingly, this Yamaraj had not come to take someone’s life, but to teach the importance of wearing helmet.
Inspired by their counterparts in Bengaluru, the Hubballi police, along with a group of artists, adopted this unique way to warn motorists to follow traffic rules.
A man dressed up as Yamaraj, hopped onto the bikes of helmet-less riders and took them to police. Later, the police and artists asked the traffic rules violators to wear helmet and follow traffic rules.
“Your children, parents are waiting for you at your home. Think of them and wear helmet for your safety, and not for the sake of police,” the artist said.
Later, the Yamaraj sent the embarrassed motorists and also gifted helmets to a few helmet-less riders.
