 Osho said the operation would be a continuous process, and the authorities would not relent until the Okada operators comply with the rules.

 “As long as they continue violating the traffic rules, we will continue to seize their bikes. If we get approval for crushing, we will approach the court for an order of forfeiture, and once the order comes, we crush,” she warned.
