The Senate Standing Committee on Interior on Tuesday refused to delegate powers to ministry of interior to amend Rule 71 of CrPC, which deals with traffic rules violation.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik in this regard moved a bill: “Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill, 2012” on November 16 in the Senate to get powers to raise fines and amend traffic rules if need be.

Chairman Standing Com-mittee Talha Mehmood said if the ministry was allowed to amend rules, it would increase fines at its will.
