BANGALORE: A police constable attached to Madivala police station was severely injured after a techie hit his car after he was asked to stop for routine check up near Silk Board Junction on Hosur Road in the wee hours of Tuesday. The police have arrested the software engineer in connection with the incident.

The constable, Basavaiah (26), a native of Belagavi, has sustained injuries in his right leg and has been admitted to a private hospital. The arrested techie has been identified as Manu Swayambhu Trivedi, a native of Uttar Pradesh and a resident of HSR Layout.

According to the police, Basavaiah and other constable, Shivaraj, were deputed to check suspicious vehicles near the Silk Board junction on Monday night as robbery cases were being reported there. Around 1.30 am, a Ford Figo car being driven recklessly was found coming from BTM Layout towards HSR Layout. Basavaiah cautioned the driver to stop the car. But, the driver rammed the car into the police barricade and knocked down Basavaiah before hitting Hoysala police jeep and a Tata Indica car that had stopped for checking.

“The driver was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol, but it has not been confirmed yet,” the police said.
