SHC orders STA to submit reply in petition on CNG rickshaws.

HYDERABAD -- The Sindh High Court here Tuesday ordered the Sindh Transport Authority (STA) to submit reply in a petition accusing the Authority of unlawful crackdown on 4-stroke CNG rickshas in Sanghar district.

Deen Mohammad, Roshan Ali and others in their petition alleged that the SHC's earlier order about the ban pertained to the three-wheeler Qingchi riskshas which mainly operate in Karachi.

They claimed that their vehicles were 4-stroke CNG rickshaws which were allowed under the law to be used as means of public transport.

The petitioners further alleged that the staff of the RTA Sanghar was extracting bribes from the ricksha drivers and in some cases also impounding their vehicles.

They prayed the court to order RTA to allow that mode of transport to operate without any hindrance.

The Hyderabad Circuit Bench ordered the Secretary STA, Commissioner Shaheed Benazirabad division, Deputy Commissioner Sanghar and other respondents to submit reply at the next date of hearing which would be scheduled in the office of the SHC's Additional Registrar.
