This refers to your lead story ‘BMC corrupt marshal’ (A.V., July 28). These clean-up marshals are rogues and so is the BMC. I have seen on several occasions clean-up marshals at Mumbai CST and elsewhere in the city not issuing a receipt to offenders for littering and spitting on the roads. When I questioned a clean-up marshal for not issuing a receipt to one offender, he told me to mind my own business and also slapped me. When I brought this matter to the notice of the civic body officials, they wouldn’t take action either against the errant clean-up marshal. I wonder where the money collected by them goes even though some of them issues receipt.
