Police have registered an FIR after a Mercedes driver allegedly abused and manhandled a head constable who had stopped him for jumping a red light in central Delhi’s Tughlak Road, officials said on Saturday.
The man, aged around 28-30, also claimed that his father was a joint secretary in the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.
According to the FIR, assistant sub-inspector Virender Singh, head constable Rakesh Kumar and constable Surender were deployed at the Subramania Bharti Marg T-Point on Humayun Road on March 25. Around 6.55 pm, the white Mercedes and a Toyota Fortuner jumped the red light to Humayun Road and Singh directed Kumar to stop the vehicles, the FIR stated.
As the vehicles pulled over, the driver of the Mercedes — which bore a temporary number plate — got down and allegedly hurled abuses at Kumar. The man also manhandled Kumar, it said. His personal security officer, who was in the Fortuner, tried to pacify him. The Mercedes driver then claimed that his father was a joint secretary in the Home ministry and warned Kumar that his action might affect his job, the FIR added.
