In an act of revenge,six youngsters allegedly ran over a Sub Inspector of UP Police shortly after they were released on bail for drunken driving in this satellite township of the national capital.
Sub Inspector John Peter,who booked them for drunken driving on Wednesday night and sent them to police station,is battling for his life at a hospital here,a senior police official said on Friday.
Peter and other police personnel were carrying out routine checking when they found the youths in a drunken state. They challaned them and sent the youths to police station where they later got bail.
“While going out of the police station,they saw Peter on a motorcycle and ran over him,” the official said. According to Senior Superintendent of Police (Noida) A K Singh,the youths were stopped again and told that they were being constantly checked.
“Earlier,we did not know why they were in police station. Later we got to know that they were the same boys who were booked for IPC 290 (creating public nuisance) and later got bail,” he said. The youths were arrested again for attempted murder of a public servant.
Peter’s daughter said he was on his way to work when some people in a car hit him. She said Peter fell on the road and then the accused allegedly drove over him,fracturing both his legs and right hand.
Peter,who hails from Uttarakhand,is presently in ICU.
