The traffic police issued a challan to Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar's official vehicle.
The traffic police Monday issued a challan after Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar's official vehicle was found parked in a no-parking zone, an official said.
Mr Mahadeshwar's vehicle was seen parked right under the BMC's no-parking signboard in suburban Vile Parle Saturday, said the official.
At that time, Mr Mahadeshwar, a Shiv Sena leader, was visiting the Koldongari area in Vile Parle.
His official vehicle was spotted outside a popular coastal fish food joint between Andheri and Vile Parle, the official said.
The food joint is situated at a narrow and congested road which has been declared a no-parking zone, he said.
Taking serious cognisance of the violation, the traffic police issued a challan to the mayors vehicle, said a senior police official.
However, the fine amount was not known.
A challan refers to the receipt for fine recovered for traffic rule violation.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) administration has started a drive against unauthorised parking since last week and collected lakhs of rupees in fine.
The civic body has been imposing hefty fines on vehicles parked within a 500-meter radius of 29 authorised public parking lots in the metropolis, the official said.
