As many as 20 cops from each of the 40 traffic police stations in the city participated in the undercover raid. The trigger for mounting a drive on this scale was when a recent Facebook post by a 22-year-old human rights activist that stated she was allegedly assaulted by an auto driver in Shantinagar, went viral.
