The Gurgaon police on Wednesday booked a couple for allegedly pelting stones and breaking the windshield of a car and threatening the car’s occupant in an alleged road rage incident in the Palam Vihar area.
According to the police, the complainant, identified as Sandeep, a resident of Sector 9, said that he was on his way to Palam Vihar to run some errands. His car was stuck in traffic near Ansal corporate plaza. At around 7 pm, his car brushed against a scooter coming from the opposite direction.

In the FIR, he said, “She was irate and picked up stones and started pelting them at my car. She broke the windshield, a window, and rearview mirror of my car using stones and then called her husband. She also picked up a brick and hit the car’s bonnet. Her husband arrived and threatened to kill me. When I tried to click their photo, he threatened me again and challenged me to take whatever action I wanted.”
Police said the incident took place on October 2 evening, but an FIR was registered on Wednesday night after investigation.
