When he refused to do so, the cop subjected him to a breathalyser test in which he tested positive. Objecting to the checkup, Nisham picked up a quarrel with the police personnel. When the cop asked him to step out of the car, he refused and caught hold of the cop’s waist belt and yanked her inside the car, before locking the car with his remote control.
The inebriated man also hurled lewd comments at her in front of his wife, who was also seated in the car, SI Devi stated in her complaint.
