After the driver pulled to the side of the road, he was confronted by the cop who immediately asked him to kill the engine and step out. The man then tried to pin the blame on the vehicle in front, for not being able to park his car. The cop reiterated that he step out of the vehicle.
Last month, a traffic policeman was killed when a speeding truck hit him and dragged him for about half a kilometre after he tried to stop it for routine check near Rao Tula Ram Marg in southwest Delhi. The truck driver, who attempted to flee immediately after the incident, was caught by traffic policemen near Mahipalpur after a three-kilometre chase.
In April, a traffic cop in Delhi was forced to jump on to the bonnet of a car after the driver refused to stop at the checkpoint and tried to run him over. The cop injured his hand as he clung on to the bonnet of the vehicle which raced away on the busy highway.
