Under intoxication, the woman allegedly hurled abuses, punched and kicked the police personnel, including a lady cop. She also allegedly broke the mirror of the police jeep. This went on well beyond midnight.
Later, she was taken to Mahila Police Station where the police waited until she sobered up. Though she also attempted to flee from the police station, cops managed to bring her under control.
The woman was communicating with the cops in Hindi and English but she was not fluent in either of the two languages. The cops had also found a bottle of wine from the jeans-clad woman. Meanwhile, police are also verifying for what reasons the 21-year-old woman was in Bhubaneswar, said sources.
