According to a report by CNBC commuters across the world waste a week every year stuck in traffic.
On the other hand, commuters in Gurgaon (Gurugram to some) probably spend the entire year stuck in the now globally notorious traffic jams the city offers.
So when one commuter got stuck in a jam yet again, he decided to ask the Delhi Traffic Police for help.
But instead of getting help, he was told that the matter was out of Delhi Police's jurisdiction and that they were forwarding the complaint to Gurgaon Police.
Thanks, matter is out of Delhi Police jurisdiction so your complaint is being forwarded to @gurgaonpolice for taking necessary action.— Delhi Traffic Police (@dtptraffic) September 22, 2017
The traffic jam is till turn for T3 that’s why I included delhi police in tweet— Birender Kumar Singh (@singhbk) September 22, 2017
However, Gurgaon Police soon blamed Delhi Traffic Police for the traffic jam being caused in Gurgaon.
@dtptraffic Plz clear your traffic over rajokri flyover. This is resulting in serious traffic congestion in Gurugram.— Gurugram Police (@gurgaonpolice) September 22, 2017
And we were left like...

I was stuck in jam till about 10 min ago.. it starts in Delhi territory @dtptraffic shouldn't shrug responsibility— Vjay (@vjay_kas) September 22, 2017
The old blame game of Delhi police, either the offence can be prosecuted on the spot, or out of jurisdiction or staff has been informed!!!— Navneet (@nav_neet) September 22, 2017
The next time something like this happens, toss kar lena. Easy padega.
