Furious at being stopped, couple tries to run over constable
Gurugram: Interrupted by a traffic constable for jumping the red light, a couple tried to run over the vehicle of the law enforcement official. The incident occurred at Vatika Chowk that is on Sohna road. The incident occurred at around 10:00 am when the traffic constable stopped the Honda City Vehicle over the traffic violation. Furious over being stopped, the woman driver identified as Anamika tried to first run over the vehicle on the constable. It did not end there. In more drama that followed thereafter, Anamika and her husband Rahul, manhandled the law enforcement officials and the local media personnel who were present around the area. They were later arrested.
"We have taken action in the incident and arrested the couple who not only violated a traffic rule but then tried to even physically harm one of our law enforcement official. The police have taken a strict stance against traffic violations and are prepared to tackle such stray incidents," said a senior police official from Gurugram police.
This is not the first time when cops have been targeted by commuters in such a manner. There have been incidents in the past when the cops even lost their lives due to the reckless approach adopted by the drivers. Many drunken drivers and rash drivers who have been penalised for their unlawful act have also got in a scuffle with the law enforcement personnel. Not only deaths but various police officials have also sustained severe injuries due to rash driving.
To tackle such incidents, a number of meetings have been held. It was decided by the officials that though tough action against the culprits will continue, the police on their part will try to be composed in order to tackle angry commuters.
