“Under risky circumstances, instead of putting their lives in danger, police personnel should simply note down the numbers of vehicles and send them to their superiors for further action," Gurgaon Commissioner of Police K K Rao said.
The incident took place in Gurgaon’s Sector 29 on Wednesday evening. Police said the driver, a Dwarka-based businessman, has been arrested.
A video of the incident made by a traffic policeman deployed near Signature Tower has gone viral on social media. The constable sustained minor injuries.
The child was missing since Sunday evening. But her family did not alert the police at the time, and were searching for her on their own. It is only when her body was found on Monday that the police came to know of her having been missing.
Speaking at the inaugural session of the two-day workshop, Commissioner of Police KK Rao said: “It is critical to practice restraint and make yourself capable of taking the right decisions even in the most serious situations.”
