Government authorities have announced many drives against the usage of fake number plates for many reason including potential terrorist threats who may use fake number plates on cars to carry out their dirty jobs.
At one instance, government become so strict that whether fake number was used by some top government official or not, they were apprehended on the spot by the police officials.
However, lead by example isn’t one of government’s mandate and therefore, the media reported quite vastly on this issue where Prime Minister Gillani’s ride to Supreme Court for a case hearing has fake number plates.
The number which was verified by MTMIS (Motor Transport Management Informantion Sytem) online checking system, is registered to a 2002 Honda Accord owned Ch. Muhammad Riaz Ahsan.
This may be a security measure but it does seem likely so as government ministers and bureaucrats are always found to have their cars with fake number plates.
You can simply log on to MTMIS website and input the LRZ 786 number to look at the result yourself.
