Guwahati: Driver Charges at Policeman, Drags him on Bonnet for Metres

GUWAHATI: In yet another case of complete disregard for traffic rules, a man in Guwahati attacked a traffic policeman and dragged him for several metres on the bonnet of his vehicle (a Tempo Traveler). The policeman escaped a near-death experience even as the passengers kept urging the driver to stop the vehicle.

A video of this dangerous incident filmed by a passenger is currently circulating on social media.

Watch the Video here:

Speaking to G Plus, DCP Traffic Prashanta Saikia said, "The incident took place at the Jalukbari flyover. The area is a No Parking Zone and the driver had parked the vehicle there. When the traffic policeman asked him to move, he quickly attempted to escape and the incident occurred."

In the video, the vehicle is seen being driven for around 300-400 metres with the traffic policeman latched onto its bonnet before coming to a halt. 

"The driver of the vehicle has been arrested and forwarded to the court and the vehicle has been seized," commissioner of police Deepak Kumar informed G Plus.

    The driver should be charged with "attempt to murder"; that to an on duty policeman. I do agree, policeman are always not correct and behaves rude many a times. Demands gratification, even though, this kind of behaviour from a driver is not tolerable. Stern action needs to be initiated against him.
