Woman thrashes Mumbai traffic cop, held with biker
Mumbai : A woman and a bike rider have been arrested on Saturday after the lady allegedly thrashed an on-duty traffic police constable in Kalbadevi area of south Mumbai. However, the woman has claimed that her actions were a reaction to the police personnel who apparently abused her.
Earlier, a video had gone viral on the internet where the woman was seen thrashing the traffic police personnel, who had stopped her for riding pillion without a helmet. The woman, dressed in blue, is seen in a heated argument with the personnel.
As the video went viral, people shared their reactions and some pointed out that the woman was not even wearing a mask, which is a government rule as a precautionary measure against Covid-19.
The incident, which took place Friday afternoon at Kalbadevi’s Cotton Exchange Naka in Mumbai, also grabbed Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s attention, who tweeted the video demanding immediate action against the woman, saying it is a “matter of Mumbai Police’s honour”.
Sharing the video on Twitter, the leader wrote in Marathi: “This woman must be dealt with immediately. It is a matter of honour for Mumbai Police. Take action.”
