A spokesman of Railway Passengers Association, an NGO, said that ‘dadagiri’ (bullying behaviour) of autorickshaw drivers is on a rise, which needs to be curbed. Recently, a video of an autorickshaw crossing a foot over bridge at Virar in Palghar district had gone viral on social media. It had prompted the police to take measures to stop recurrence of such incidents.
