Islamabad - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Nafeesa Khattak’s son never thought that his misadventure to use a fake number on a legally-purchased car would end up in litigation. Ali, son of the lady MNA apparently wanted to avoid inconvenience at the hands of traffic police as he used the number plate of his already-purchased car to his applied-for vehicle — losing both to the police for the time being. The vehicle adorned with a ‘fake number plate’ is yet to be registered, police told The Nation. They said both cars were legally purchased but one of them was fitted with a fake number plate.

Two vehicles with the same number plate had come under the microscope of the Kohsar police on Monday. Both were spotted parked in front of a property being used by the PTI MNA Nafeesa Khattak in sector F-6 on Margalla Road. After investigating the issue, police seized the two vehicles. “None of them was stolen vehicle but the owner had put one’s number plate to the other also in his ownership,” the investigation officer Rasheed Ahmad told The Nation.

e said that Toyota (Prius white colour engine number INZ-FXE 1496 ML) was yet to be registered with the excise and taxation department. “Both the vehicles are the property of PTI MNA Nafeesa Kahttak’s son, Ali. Both the vehicles are in the custody of the police as the police booked the driver of the car spotted with fake number plate.

Further investigation into the matter is underway,” he added. He was of the view that the owner fixed a fake number pate to the applied-for vehicle apparently to avoid action from the traffic police while moving on road.

Nafeesa Khattak was elected member of national assembly on the seat reserved for women from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on the ticket of PTI after 2013 general elections. None of his family members could be reached out for comments on the instant issue.

Flouting traffic rules by the mighty politicians of the country has had been a practice here. But this attitude has hardly met a strict response from the concerned quarters. The PTI has always talked about uprightness in politics and the instant case is a test case to start with to purge the party of such elements. It is to mention here that same registration number is being used for multiple vehicles by criminals and tax evaders and the police have no software to detect them on road.
