THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  In a bizarre incident, a few army personnel allegedly took away the key of an SUV car in the middle of the road and left the place after the car brushed against the rear side of an Indian Army official jeep at Model School Junction here on Tuesday.

The incident occurred around 11.30 am. The car with registration number TN 07 W 5799 and the jeep of the army were proceeding in the same direction towards Panavila junction from Thampanoor.

When the two vehicles started moving forward after the traffic signal turned green, the car driven by Ramesh Kumar hit on the back side of the jeep.

Following this, the car driver tried to speed away and the army men chased down the car. The army men later entered into a verbal duel with the car driver. Though the car driver apologised before the personnel, the latter took away the key of the car and left the spot. Eventually, the traffic at the stretch went haywire and the traffic police had to move the vehicle to the road side with the help of the local people. A few hours later, the car owner managed to arrange a duplicate key and left the place without lodging a complaint before the local police.

City Police Commissioner G Sparjan Kumar said that the police had started verifying the CCTV footage.
