A Delhi Traffic Police constable was dragged on the bonnet of a car for several metres in South-West Delhi’s Cantonment area after he tried to stop the driver for rash driving. The accused, Shubham Kumar, managed to escape but was later caught by the locals.
Police said the incident took place around 5 pm on Monday on the carriageway going towards Tilak Nagar from Dhaula Kuan and an FIR has been registered. “On the basis of a complaint filed by the traffic constable, Mahipal Yadav, we have registered an FIR under IPC sections 186,353, 279, and 337 against him at the Delhi Cannt police station,” a senior police officer said.

“At around 5.10 pm, Yadav saw a white car having a fancy number plate being driven in a zig-zag way. He signalled the car driver to stop. The driver slowed down the vehicle but suddenly accelerated it. He tried to stop him and fell on the car’s bonnet and grabbed its wiper. But instead of stopping his car, the accused dragged him on the bonnet and managed to escape after he fell off the bonnet. He was later chased by the public and local police and was arrested,” an officer said.
