Bengaluru constable files complaint after lady rider attacks him with sandals
- Last week, a two-wheeler rider named Sarika was allegedly tailing the Vice President's convoy in Bengaluru
- Traffic constable Venkatesh tried to stop her two-wheeler, but the girl reportedly abused the cop and rode off
- A complaint has been lodged in High Grounds police station, filed by constable Venkatesh.
In yet another incident of an assault on a policeman in Bengaluru, a 24-year-old girl allegedly abused, and threatened to assault, a traffic police constable for stopping her near Ambedkar Bhavan. Police say she was stopped because she was tailing the convoy of Vice President Hamid Ansari.
Reportedly, RG Venkatesh, a constable attached to Kadugondanahalli (KG Halli) traffic police station, was on duty at Queen's Circle last week when Vice President Hamid Ansari and AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi were in the city for the re-launch of the National Herald.
As usual, all traffic was halted on the stretch to allow the VVIP convoy to reach Ambedkar Bhavan at 2.45 pm on June 12. Venkatesh stated that he spotted Sarika riding behind the convoy in her two-wheeler (KA 03 HK 2976), after emerging from a basement parking.
In his complaint, Venkatesh said that he tried to stop the lady, but she refused to stop. She reportedly instead drove on the pavement, before ramming her vehicle to a median and falling down. Venkatesh says the woman then hurled abuses at the constable, and tried to physically assault him, including with her sandals.
Speaking to the Times of India, constable Venkatesh said - "She abused and attacked me with sandals before speeding off. When asked, she said her name was Sarika," Kannada Prabha reports that she even dared Venkatesh to do anything he could, by saying "I'm Sarika. Note it down and do whatever you want."
Despite the attempts of Venkatesh, and Vyalikaval women police, the woman then fled the spot on her two-wheeler.
Venkatesh has now lodged a complaint against Sarika at the High Grounds police station under Section 353 of IPC, for assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharging his duty. And the police have issued a notice to her.
If she does not turn up at the police station for enquiry, further action will be initiated against Sarika, reports Vijaya Karnataka.
