Gurugram: A man was arrested for dragging a motorcycle by his speeding car for more than three kilometres ignoring attempts by other commuters to stop his vehicle, the Gurugram Police said on Thursday.


The car first hit the motorcycle parked along the roadside and when the two-wheeler got stuck beneath it, the speeding vehicle dragged it for kilometres on Wednesday night, police said.

The motorcycle owner, a bouncer, said the incident took place around 11.30 pm when he was returning to home from duty. He said he had a narrow escape as he was standing near his motorcycle parked on the roadside when the car hit his two-wheeler.
