A Varanasi-based lawyer has sought admission in the horse riding training school being run by the mounted police unit due to a constant hike in fuel prices.
In his application to the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), lawyer Harish Chandra Maurya said that he has to cover a distance of around 20 kilometres to come to the court from his residence in the Sindhora area.
Due to the increased price of petrol, he said he wants to buy a horse.
He urged the SSP to allow him to train for horse riding at the police lines.
“I have submitted my application to the SSP office, and I am waiting for a response,” Maurya told reporters.
The horse-riding school, run by the traffic police, gives a 15-day training against a prescribed fee.
“Any enthusiast above 10 years of age can apply and get training by the mounted police,” said the sub-inspector and in-charge of mounted police unit Ram Kumar.
