KATHMANDU— The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) has initiated the ‘traffic rapid squad’ campaign for maintaining peace and order and for management of traffic in the Kathmandu Valley.
The Division brought this campaign during the festival time to improve the Valley’s traffic management, minimize the growing traffic accidents and promoting road discipline.
MTPD Chief Basanata Kumar Panta said the campaign has been initiated to prevent traffic jam and incidents of theft during the festival time in the Kathmandu Valley. He added that police would be mobilized rapidly to the incident site for necessary action as part of the campaign.
Fifty-five Nepal Police personnel and 55 traffic police personnel would be mobilized on 55 motorbikes each day as part of the ‘rapid squad’ campaign.
