Delhi man says he was fined for playing music on Harley-Davidson bike. His story is viral


A man was fined by the police in New Delhi for playing music on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle as he wrote about the incident at length on Facebook. Raghav Swati Pruthi recently bought a Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special that has a factory fit audio system. In his post, Raghav said that he was riding near Tilak Nagar and was stopped by the police, who also asked him for his license.

Cops, thereafter, asked Raghav for his bike’s papers and instructed him to head to the police station. “As a citizen, I followed what I was asked to do. When I went inside, they started shouting that how can you ride a bike which has speakers and saddle bags. This bike is modified. I told them it is a pre-installed bike and it’s not a Bullet. But Tilak Nagar ACP and SI kept on saying that it is an illegal bike and you can’t ride this bike,” Raghav wrote in his post.

Raghav was fined despite showing his documents. “Challan is for playing music on bike, not for playing loud music on bike,” he wrote, adding that the volume was at thirty percent when the police stopped him near Tilak Nagar. “When they took the bike to the police station, they took it to full volume, made video and challaned me,” Raghav said.
