Order of the Karnataka High Court regarding release of vehicles seized for violating Covid-19 lockdown norms.

The application was filed by the Karnataka government before the HC saying that the police was finding it difficult to find a proper place for parking of so many vehicles (1,37,503 two wheelers, 7,432 four wheelers and 7,123 other vehicles).

The Karnataka HC directed that the seized vehicles can be released if the vehicle owners make an application to the jurisdictional police officers to grant custody of seized vehicles - after verification of the ownership and payment of fines.
