A daredevil ride through the city evading police and pulling stunts like ‘wheelies’ ended in two people being booked for reckless driving as alert cops set up a barricade and arrested one of them finally at Halasuru Gate.

City-based mechanic Jabiullah, (19), a resident of Oil Mill in Lingarajpuram, was pulling stunts on his bike in the middle of traffic on Sunday afternoon at Cantonment Road. The mechanic, who broke two signals and evaded police, was finally nabbed by Halasuru Gate traffic police at Corporation Circle and later, the police produced him before a court.

Around 3.30 pm, Jabiullah, accompanied by his friend Irfan (20), who was riding pillion, started doing ‘wheelies’ on an altered Suzuki Samurai bike bearing registration number KA 40 E 4673 near the Cantonment Railway Station.

Online CCTV cameras operated by the staff of the Traffic Management Centre noticed this and immediately alerted the traffic police manning that stretch of the road. The cops then tried to catch the duo near Coffee Board junction, but they escaped. Another attempt to stop them at Thimmaiah Road was also unsuccessful as Jabiullah jumped a signal and escaped. The cops then alerted Halasuru Gate Police who put up a barricade to nab the two.

Upon stopping Jabiullah successfully, Irfan, however, escaped. The police have booked a case against Irfan under the Motor Vehicles Act for encouraging Jabiullah and under the Indian PEnal Code (IPC) for reckless driving. A similar incident was reported at Madiwala traffic police station limits on Friday evening when Mohammed Imran Pasha and Syed Azam, residents of Neeladri Nagar, were booked for wheeling near Kudlu Gate and were about to hit two traffic policemen Doddaraju and Lingappa who then gave chase and caught them.
