The Chairman of the National Commission for scheduled castes, Buta Singh is once again courting controversy after being caught on camera travelling in a car without number plates.
Singh was seen on his way to Bijnore in Uttar Pradesh, in a car with number plates - neither visible in front of, or at the back of the car.
When quizzed on how such basic rules were flaunted, Singh replied it was all for "security reasons" adding that in his case it was because he had Z plus security cover.
"I have been told that vehicles carrying a person with Z plus security don't need number plates. This is done for security reasons," said Buta Singh.
