On the eve of friendship day, the youngsters thronged the Futala lake to celebrated the day with friends and family. Seeking this as an opportunity a group of miscreants illegally started charging the citizens for parking.
However, there was no parking board nor any receipts were given to the citizens for the fee paid. When the people enquired about the receipts, the goon started threatening them.
Around 15 to 20 lads were found recovering the amount from the citizens. The drivers were charged as per the vehicle ranging from Rs 10 to 40. When one of the drivers questioned about the recovery fee, it was learned that it was done under the direction of a local goon.
As per the sources, the gang leader on whose direction the boys were extorting claimed that â€œThis is illegal parking and everyone knows about it but no one stops us, even the NMC Corporator and police officials are fully aware of the illegal parkingâ€.
