According to the police, the ASI — manning a barricade near MGF Metropolitan Mall with three female colleagues — noticed the errant Mercedes and tried to stop it. At this, Karwal allegedly started abusing her and leaning out of his window, pulled her and pushed her back before driving past.
Repeated attempts to contact Karwal on his mobile phone and email went unanswered.
He has been booked for criminal intimidation, insulting the modesty of a woman, assault, using obscene language, rash driving and obstructing a public servant from doing his/her duty.
"We arrested the accused. He was driving rashly and misbehaved with a woman cop, an act that cannot be tolerated. He fled the spot but the car number helped us nab him,” DCP (east) Nazneen Bhasin said.
