Journalist Sameer Yasir termed the act as a disgrace and claimed that the famed traffic cop had failed in Kashmir,”Shri Basant Rath is a disgrace on the name of traffic policing. He failed miserably in when it come to his primary job. Other job, of using camera for fame, is also giving it back. Watch the traffic management by cop.
