“The accused was driving the SUV on the wrong side from NID Road and was speeding. At the Paldi intersection, TRB jawan Mahendra tried to stop the vehicle, however, the driver tried to mow him down. Mahendra climbed on the bonnet of the car in a bid to stop it, but the accused continued to drive the vehicle for more than a kilometre, dragging him through the busy Paldi intersection. Bamaniya received minor injuries in the incident but was able to finally stop the vehicle. The accused was then brought to N Traffic Police Station along with the car and was arrested,” a police officer at N Traffic Police Station said.
