Hi learned experts,
I wish to know the laws regarding use of police vehicle outside the registered state.
I am asking because I was driving alone yesterday in Nashik highway when I was stopped by a alleged "police" in a vehicle registration number starting from "GJ" and 2 men (not in uniform) were asking to show my drivers licence, registration etc.
Their vehicle was a Maruti Suzuki make. Their vehicle had no police lights or sticker, but had one "POLICE" board in the front side, near the steering wheel.
When I asked them to show their ID, they started misbehaving in voice, and said stuff like they will book me etc. It was during the day so I managed to raise my voice to attract other passers by and in 10 minutes they asked me to just leave.
Is it legal to operate in such a way?
What are the country's laws that allow GJ police vehicle to be used in MH?
Should they have special permit? Should the police vehicle have any sticker? Or NOC etc?
