A senior police officer chased a speeding car on the streets of Delhi for nearly three kilometres in the early hours of Thursday, only to find out, after he managed to stop the vehicle, that its driver was allegedly involved in multiple cases of sex crimes.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Amit Kaushik, posted at Ambedkar Nagar sub-division, was out on night patrol when he saw a speeding White Swift ram a motorcycle, injuring the two men on it.
The men sustained minor injuries on their hands and face, said police.

“Kaushik, who was in a police vehicle and was accompanied by his driver and operator, started following the car. They gave chase all the way till Chirag Delhi, then to Outer Ring Road and finally towards Lala Lajpat Rai Marg,” said a police officer.
The high-speed chase ended near Kailash Colony Metro station, where the police vehicle finally managed to stop the Swift, said the officer.
The ACP found four occupants in the car — Satish Bhardwaj, who was at the wheel, his relatives Rajkumar and Manish, and his friend Vinod, said police. Satish, who was allegedly drunk, continued driving even after he realised that a police vehicle was trying to stop him, said the officer.
Further investigation revealed that Bhardwaj, a resident of Neb Sarai, was an accused in a rape case, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (southeast) Romil Baniya.
He had also been accused of “selling” a minor into prostitution, said the officer. Bhardwaj was arrested on the spot.
A case under sections 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code, and 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs) under the Motor Vehicles Act has been registered against Bhardwaj.
