BANGALORE: A traffic police officer, allegedly drunk and riding recklessly, was at the receiving end of public anger after he crashed his motorcycle into a car on Sampige Road 7th Main in Malleswaram late on Sunday evening.

According to a complaint by Kamal, the driver of the WagonR (KA 05 ML 7474), he was travelling with his vehicle owner Shanthilal and a relative when they felt someone bang into the vehicle from behind.

They got out to see the two-wheeler rider, identified as Eshwrappa, an Assistant Sub-Inspector at Chamarajpet traffic police station, trying to break the rear windshield of the car.

Eshwarappa was on his way to work on a Bullet (KA 03 4312) when the incident occurred. According to the complaint, when Kamal and Shanthilal began questioning the ASI, he hit them. The two managed to escape and got into their vehicle. Before they could call the Malleswaram police station, about 30-40 passersby crowded there and began beating up Eshwarappa.

The ASI, who tried to escape the assault, was soon overpowered. He was later shifted to a nearby hospital.

According to Malleswaram police, the vehicle owner was injured in the attack.

“We have sent a memo to the hospital where Eshwarappa is admitted to ascertain whether he was actually drunk at the time of the incident,” they added. DCP (West) S Girish said that the ASI has been suspended pending inquiry.
