The Chittagong Metropolitan Police seized more than 500 CNG-run auto-rickshaws in the last four days on charge of plying without meter.

Plying of CNG-run auto-rickshaws on the city roads has marked a sharp decrease due to the ongoing drives.

CMP sources said they had directed the owners of the CNG auto-rickshaws in the last month to install meters by December 31 with an announcement that the authorities would not allow any auto-rickshaw without meter from January 1.

‘We are in difficulty due to non-availability of CNG-run auto-rickshaws,’ said Ayub Ali, a businessman, adding that they were facing such difficulty for the implementation of the meter service.

Mohammad Ali, deputy commissioner (traffic) of the CMP, said they would continue their drives till they could phase out auto-rickshaws without meter completely.
