Saturday morning a video surfaced on the internet of a young man driving his car with a police officer dragged on its bonnet. Within hours, it became a sensation.
As more information on this poured in, it became clear it is Jalandhar’s.
A 20-year-old young man, identified as Anmol Mehmi of Nakodar Chowk, allegedly tried to run over his Ertiga car on on-duty assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Mulkh Raj when the officer signalled him to stop his car. It happened at a checkpoint near Milkbar Chowk near Model Town around 8:30am. However, he tried to sped away hitting the cop and dragging him on his car’s bonnet for few meters.
