MALE, March 28 (HNS) – The Government today banned the use of Sun-X or any other material, which prevents a view of the interior of any commercial transport vehicle or vessel, including cars.

According to an announcement by the transport authority, the decision was made with the power granted to them under article 45 of the constitution. The announcement also reads that such vehicles, such as taxis, should be corrected before the first of next month.

The new regulation maybe linked to an incident in which a 20-year-old female riding in a taxi was sexually molested by the vehicle’s driver, near the customs area.

Reliable sources revealed to Haveeru, that the girl was sitting in the back seat before the driver locked all the doors and tried to abuse her. The girl’s clothes were ripped, and her face was badly bruised during the ensuing struggle.
