However, 40 vehicles out of 57 were of government officials including social welfare state minister Nuruzzaman Ahmed.
When contacted, DMP assistant commissioner (traffic-Ramna) Mohammad Alauddin told the independent that ACC chairman himself carried out the drive and filed 57 cases including fines against vehicles of ministers, secretaries, brigadier of army, police, leaders of the ruling party and journalists for using the wrong side of Ramna park road.
Top police personnel including Joint Commissioner (traffic) Mosleuddin Ahmed were also present during the drive.
